The End Of Universe - Poem by Rajnish Manga

The End of Universe

The news
Must have reached your door steps
I have also come to know that
The universe is now expanding
At a rate slower than it was about
Three billion years ago.
Scientists have calculated that
At this rate the universe will survive
Another one billion years at the most.
Five Ws are pondering over the related issues.
Till the time a palpable solution to the riddle
Is available to us
Come, let us enjoy life to the fullest
Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Aboard a time machine,
‘Live and let live' should serve as
The cryogenic fuel
During our long voyage.

    Your advice is great. Why, we who perish literally in less than a second of cosmic time, should break our heads pondering over situations happening in millions and billions of years. We weren't there even yesterday! You have selected a great topic. (Report) Reply

    Ah, but keep hope- a lot can happen in one billion years... like the suffocation death of our beloved planet Earth. But let's toast her and hope she hangs around to the universe's end- - - ]
    Eat, Drink and Be Merry
    Aboard a time machine,
    ‘Live and let live' should serve as
    The cryogenic fuel
    During our long voyage.
