The universe is one of many
In the multiverse,
As unremarkable as any,
No better and no worse.

The Big Bang was just one big bang
Lighting up the Void.
One by one the rockets sang,
Burst, and were destroyed.

Existence ends, begins, and ends
In moments that can last
Beyond a time one comprehends,
Though over just as fast.

Fantastic fireworks! And who
Might see such spawn and death,
Such multiversal ballyhoo
Encompassed in one breath?

Eternity's a gift of grace
Awarded every soul
Who, living in one time and place,
Can summon up the whole.
