Or Cosmic Heat Death

Jupiter and Saturn suck
Up asteroids threatening Earth
Like bodyguards taking the hit.
Do you ever look at the Cosmos
With its black holes,
Hungry Red Suns, and
Manhattan-sized rocks—
All the apocalyptic possibilities—
And think that humanity is a bit
Like a baby in a shark cage?
Why’s there a shark cage at all?
