Big Bang To Big Crunch



An inferno cataclysm, billions of years ago first rang,
the actual birth of time and space: the explosion called Big Bang.

Next a turbo-charged expansion, the great force dubbed "dark energy,"
flinging matter headlong apart: start of anti-gravity.

Aggregation of combined mass will slowdown, stop and then reverse,
"pulling a rising rocket down:" one untethered fall to earth.

The grand universe once ablaze with uncountable stellar lights,
becomes a dark, cold, lonely place: vast craters of empty blight.

An apocalyptic crash back, billions of years from now will scrunch,
the actual death of time and space: the implosion called Big Crunch.
