Dark Matter

‘What is matter?’
    ‘Never mind.’
        ‘What is mind?’
            ‘No matter.’

‘What’s the Big Bang?’
    ‘Dust aligned.’
        ‘Dust that went
            a-scatter?’

‘Scattered, aye, in
    galaxies.’
        ‘What of the
            Creator?

‘Is He just a
    fallacy?
        Is God dead?’
            ‘No data!’

‘Why do stars flee?’
    ‘No-one knows.’
        ‘Are black holes
            a bubble?’

‘The universe just
    grows and grows.
        Read your Planck
            and Hubble!’

‘Has it got
    no boundary?’
        ‘No less than
            your chatter.’

‘What’s dark matter?’
    ‘Pardon me?’
        ‘Never mind.’
            ‘No matter!’
