Analysis of An Ever Changing Tide
Stretching and pulling,
the Universe goes on
each day a new dawn
The Spacetime Continuum,
today’s Top 40 hit
unless we’ve been misled
The deeper the probing,
the ‘Bigger the Bang’
What Einstein, Godel,
and Penrose began
The good news for knowledge
as we err and refute
Like a tide ever changing
—to immerse in its truth
(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2019)
