Enlightenment on the Wane

A cosmic gulf of enormity besets thee, as intellectual relevancy re-entry splash down in a vast sea of ignorance The empirical wherewithal to muse observe, with keen, hydrogen-based acuity, is nary an airy given oxygen insurance Doth not the face of the southern sky tans thy northern confidence? Giving a crescent grimaced, eclipse grin perchance Concealed thoughts art so hard to glean in the constellation of troublous times Orbital doubts waver on the lunar surface parlance Pioneer tech eyes trail blaze sunset westward, leaving an easterly wake of dawning Luddite uncertainty Meteoric progress ever on a pagan retrograde dance Neanderthals rule with nebulous, idol impunity — cave men-tality motions on an elliptical path of descent Lovers of cascading idiocy tales, comet tarry in an illiterate trance Count the stars ... notice the varying magnitudes of wisdom Blind faith getting led by a Sirius cane Gravitational scars ... trust falling in arrears create a void schism Enlightenment on a neural pulse wane Celestial numbers shine unfathomable, Mendeleev Geiger counters never stop clicking Differing degrees of sage brightness at a Cassiopeia glance Art thou Arcturus views aurora noble, doth thy vow to seek knowledge require asking? Galactic dark matter will arise from a stony heart romance
