“The society exists for the benefit of its members; not its members for the benefit of the society.” (Herbert Spencer)
The Society of Scientists exists,
One must remember,
For the benefit of each most worthy member.
It’s worthy members on the other hand,
Whose disciplines are of a great variety,
Do not exist to benefit society,
Surely this is something you can understand.
You see our members really just advise,
It’s governments decide, though they are wise
And their decisions are identical to those
Great policies our scientists propose.
