“Not another rock guy’s birthday!” haiku

Nicolas Steno, Jan. 11, 1638 — Dec. 5, 1686

Nicolas Steno
Father of geology
His legacy rocks

Check Google’s salute
To this foundational dude
From 1600s

Centuries before
Chuck Berry, Little Richard
The man could dig it

An upper crust guy
Yet he studied all layers
And how strata formed

He was all about
Things gettin’ horizontal
Just like rock ‘n’ roll

Nicolas Steno
Father of geology
His legacy? Rocks!
