Wonders of the Universe, galactic combination
Require a depth of knowledge, beyond my comprehension
Black holes, time warps, expansion, ever faster so it seems
All started from a single Bang, is this the stuff of dreams?
Steven Hawking wrote the words, I strain to understand
And then outside my window, I see the beauty of our land
Billions of stars, huge galaxies, great telescopes display
But even those quite near, are all too far away_
To be of any relevance to our living here below,
Where we create more problems, despite ev’rything we know
We already smashed the atom, and made a nuclear bomb,
At Cern we found Higgs Boson, (but it doesn’t live that long),
We’ve smashed the Ozone layer, (so now we’ll heat up quicker)
Smash the shales, by fracking, so our future power won’t flicker.
In fact we are quite ‘smashing’, but it seems to me,
The errors we keep making, will last eternally.
