For Dr Rachie, on her birthday

Because I know it was yesterday, but I was out yesterday at some Thing.

She’s a celebrated scientist who’s capable and smart;
She knows lots and lots and lots about diseases of the heart;
She spends hours picking pseudoscientific rants apart;
She thinks more about what’s true, and what might not be, than Descartes.

When it comes to spreading science, she’s got speaking spots galore;
When it comes to trumping numpties, she’s not easy to ignore;
When it comes to nomming crabby legs, she’s quite the epicure;
Happy birthday Dr Rachie! May there be a squillion more.
