There’s no proof for the existence of a God
who sets the universe’s bang just so
with right conditions 16 billion years ago
and we eventually emerge! Applaud! Applaud!
A mix of law and chance, of probability and luck -
it was a risk; is still a risk at most;
one errant asteroid and we are toast.
No one told us when or how to duck
And then what have we got? A universe
which no one knows, no claim to fame
no audience, no witness, what a ruddy shame!
How many worlds collide, without a chapter, verse?
God may exist, God may have done it all
but who would know if some accident befall?
