Following the big bang,

 

All sorts of things,

 

Curious and consequential

 

Took wing.

 

Things logical and incremental.

 

Dust congested into stars

 

Which congregated

 

Into coteries of solar systems,

 

With planets like Mars,

 

Like Jupiter and Venus,

 

But frankly,

 

Between us,

 

These variations out of dust

 

Must be much more diverse

 

In this universe.

 

Things yet to be observed

 

In space that is determined to be curved.

 

Eventually, when all this stuff

 

Ceases to be so rough,

 

When the daily grind

 

Processes this dust

 

To a form more refined

 

According to the mechanics

 

Of the second law

 

Of thermodynamics,

 

Whoever set off

 

The original firecracker,

 

The Original Bushwhacker,

 

Will sigh and cough And neatly fold

 

The whole shebang

 

Back upon itself,

 

Deposit it into His closet

 

Upon a shelf.
