THE RIGHT QUESTION
How did all this and we first come to be?
And did all this from nothing then evolve?
That is the mystery of cosmology,
Which scientists are ardent to resolve.
Yet far more urgent than the question How
To seeking minds is the inquiry Why?
And, given our development till now,
What new directives should henceforth apply?
For we have proved too dangerous for all
Of Earth’s inhabitants if not constrained,
And our insanity might well appall
A higher, wiser intellect unstained.
If such a one there is, perhaps our Sire,
May he direct our souls how to aspire.
