Louise Fazackerley & Ikram Hamud: This Is Science

As part of Experimental Words, we challenge each of our scientist-poet pairings to speed-write a new poem with the title This Is Science. Here’s Louise Fazackerley and Ikram Hamud with their interpretation - and most excellent it is too! Check them out at the event on Thursday - part of Manchester Science Festival!

This Is Science

Science is a book
Tell me I can’t open it
Science is a solution
big banging never-ending always growing
I am a token
I sit on my own at work
Science is a lifecycle
That doesn’t recognise my life
Baby-maker. 23 chromosomes + 23 chromosomes= 1
Science is in my DNA. Google it.
Society creates silos
I test this I test this
