Big Bang

             Why would anyone build a world 
                  designed to fall apart? 
             Byproduct of some cosmic blast -- 
                  a great celestial fart. 

             What could cause this space debris
                 to form itself in chains? 
                Bound by finite mortal forms 
                and doomed to cold remains. 

                Why should a vacuous expanse 
                 collapse to mold a heart? 
              When better sense would indicate 
                 a preference not to start. 

             What makes a single cell multiply 
              to change its form and function? 
             When all its bold attempts at life 
                will end with final unction. 

                How can the human soul exist 
               enslaved by earthly pleasures? 
              When all along its passion burns 
              like piles of earthly treasures.
