The weight of Atomes.

The weight of Atomes.

If Atomes are as small, as small can bee,
They must in quantity of Matter all agree:
And if consisting Matter of the same (be right,)
Then every Atome must weigh just alike.
Thus Quantity, Quality and Weight, all
Together meets in every Atome small.

Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle 1623-1673 - aka Mad Madge (predating Ms Ciccone's similar title by 350 years...)

I think your label 'odd poetry' just about sums it up.
