Galactic Collision



A fierce poetic battleground
is standing prepared in space.
Two galactic neighbors
will square off to make their case.

Andromeda and Milky Way
are headed for collision.
Each will aim and crash clear through
with surgical precision.

Ensuing chaos promises
to cast stars helter-skelter.
All the orbiting planets
will lose gravity's shelter.

A fine poetic compromise
causes conciliation.
Two galactic neighbors
will spin a new gyration.
