Our Great Heaven, Our Great Humbling

 

earth was first flat and central, man’s signature flawed prediction:
go too far and you’ll fall off – into the middle of all existence
stuck in traditional knowledge, smitten by all our typical botched admissions
our physical laws are trivial novels – written as cosmic fiction

first there was only one Sun, the pinnacle of majesty!
…except for all the other solar systems riddled through the galaxy
surely the Milky Way’s unique – the epicentral pulse at work
just ignore the rest of them (and for god’s sake don’t dare say there’s a multiverse…)

We always think there’s only one: you’re a snowflake, the clover’s 4th petal
But given all of nature’s parity – what makes you think you’re special?
