Reflections

Observing a street scene from point of high vantage Is a reminder of something really quite outlandish The people seen below are all purposefully scurrying about But in reality they seem like ants do they not? So take this scene and apply it much higher Those selfsame ants that were seen on a street below Are now invisible, not even ants any more But they still harbor an illusion that is astounding That they're the dominant force in an infinite cosmos Which makes them godlike, well maybe almost And like god, who it's not known if he's big or small These delusional creatures, from afar, can't be seen at all Maybe the universe isn't really infinite after all It's the humans in it that are invisibly small And god said he would create humans in his image But no one knows God's image; is he a flea or maybe a partridge The Higgs-Boson is called the god-particle that creates mass It takes this particle to create things like brass or grass But it's so small it can't be seen with an eye Therefore placing an order is hard but give it a try So if it's desired to create grass or brass It's a tossup if the result is a sea of brass, or grassy bass
