The Big Bang -V- The Big Doughnut Theory

What is a beginning?
What is an end?

This much we first
Must comprehend
If we would know
How all things are
To know how came
That distant star

To know how came
The Universe
Where came the matter
Wide dispersed

To seek the point
Where it began
Would be indicative
Of Man
Who with his new found science
Unfolds
The building blocks of Life
Untold

‘til now

But as for that required
“Bang”
Big doughnuts
(Those with holes not jam!)
Would be more relevant
To Man
When he would fit the Universe within
'His' plan

For all beginnings Time has seen
Are always the end of another dream

For all Beginnings are also an End
Of another state that was ‘til then

So 'Big Bangs' are fine
For those who would see
An inch from their nose
In the great Ghobi

But are little more in the plan of things
Than a butterfly, which from its chrysalis springs
