Profound, Maybe

You know
the stars have been here forever
give or take an eon

AND

the moon is really made
of limburger cheese,
so they say

AND

you know, teeny tiny men,
probably green,
live on mars, while saturn
has nine hundred-twenty two rings

AND

they say the sun will only last
another six billion years

SO, I was thinking,
given the state of the universe
isn’t it time we got a dog? ❏

Peter Witt is a retired university professor, at least that’s what it says on my business card.
