That’s what it was
The night the heavens lit up.
Some claimed it was the end of the world
They fell to their knees
Urging everyone to follow.
Others saw it for what it was
The arrival of a meteorite
It’s entry probably more impressive than it intended.
The whole show lasted a good ten minutes
Plenty of time in which to generate
Fear, apprehension, loathing,
Lots of “I told you so.”
Then it was over and that’s when the speculation began
Would there be another?
Was it the first of many?
What if the next one exploded over the town?
The town sage, in a fit of wisdom only he could generate
Suggested we love one another
And be content with what fate had in store for us.
Seemed like a reasonable idea at the time
As we settled in to await the next arrival.
