          Out of nothing flamed a blast of light           
          And thus the flaring universe began          
          With no one born to witness such a sight,           
          For only eons later evolved man.

          Yet now we’re here to speculate and seek           
          The origin and nature of it all,           
          Though cannot think in this we are unique,           
          That making us such genesis would stall.

          Surely on other worlds life has arisen           
          By principles the same as fashioned us,           
          But hopefully less liable to derision          
          For follies proving now so ominous.

               Let’s pray that other beings, angel-like,    
               Save us before avenging furies strike.
