Cosmic Soup [poem]

Cosmic Soup

Cosmic soup did come from a tin,
A tiny, teeny, tiny tin.
And before that tin, there was no tin,
No tin, no tin, nothin’.

So before that tin, there was nothin’ to put IT in.
In fact, there was nothing to put nothing in either.
For nothing was not even an ether.
And the ether was not nothing either.

So there was a time for the tin,
But no time before tin.
For the time that we’re in,
Did come from the tin that we’re in.

Well does all this matter?
Well it’s why we’re matter!
And if you don’t like soup,
There’s toast to look forward to!
