After Reading a Child's Guide to Modern Physics

If all a top physicist knows
About the Truth be true,
Then, for all the so-and-so's,
Futility and grime,
Our common world contains,
We have a better time
Than the Greater Nebulae do,
Or the atoms in our brains.

For the rest, and a recording of the poet, look here (from the BBC).

When I went to my trusty ODQ to look up some more Auden, I found a bookmark on his name from the last time I'd used it.
