I was shocked to learn today that the telescope was invented by Hans Lippershey!
I always thought Galileo was the inventor, so I was rather dismayed, I must say!
Though Hans invented it, old Gal perfected it so as to bring into better view,
The shapely blonde in the apartment across the via for his keen purview!
