tea, biscuits & astrophysics

13.8bn years ago there was nothing
not a goddamn thing
so getting from that to everything
is really quite something
I mean – at what point do you even start counting?
there isn’t even TIME?
nothing going forward, not even slime

okay – fine
I admit it
I didn’t take science at school I quit it

and I’m not at all religious
the idea God was involved is highly suspicious

I have to say, though, it seems a stretch
for infinity to shake itself and fetch
whole galaxies of stuff
when forever was perfectly good enough
if you’re happy doing nothing
why do something
I mean – WHY?
it’s mystifying
everything’s fine – why risk it?
from absolute zero to a digestive biscuit?
