The physicists in their studies

transcribe formulae that define reality.

Theirs is a cloistered yet secular tribe

that daily deals with strict duality.

Foremost, their math

must be made to agree, precisely,

with all that can be observed,

though, often,

what we are able to see

can misinform,

they must not be unnerved.

To gain acceptance,

they are overseen

by peers and the harshly economic,

while pressured to find covenant

between the classical and the subatomic,

and, though they cannot see their superstring,

keep faith that it will answer everything.
