The loud commencement of the universe,
(Except no air was there to transport sound)
Impressive cosmic bang! It still resounds!
Eons later here we are and none the worse.
As if conditions, at the start of time,
Determined that we’d later come to pass;
and love, the melee of creation would surpass
And shape it by intelligent design.
But who’s to say this was the only try?
That other universes came to pass unknown
Some mindlessly; on rocky soil were sown
and ours but accidental symmetry?
No steps to heaven appear among the stars and holes
No path through universal chaos for the trembling souls.
