Poem by Norman Rowland Gale
Astronomers, working like niggers, Neck-deep in morasses of figures, From Cricketing vainly would wean us With diagrams, even of Venus. We rather would watch a good bowler Than Bears, be they little or Polar; And bar, though of masculine genus, Wise talk on the Transit of Venus. When Ladies at _Lords_ saunter gaily With Parsons (not musing on Paley), Old friend of my boyhood, between us, Then, _then_ is the Transit of Venus!
