Hans Lippershey

Written by: Robert L. Hinshaw

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!
