Our universe has things in it because
chance quantum fluctuations enable.
Nothing is what violates Nature’s laws —
something is apparently more stable.
Supersymmetry was asking for it.
It was just too perfect to be withstood,
and once it took the predictable hit
it lit up the entire neighborhood,
and, in that Big Bang, the forces all split.
Gravity, of course, was most serious
and left having little to do with it
and, to this day, remains mysterious.
Though we still work to unify them all,
Entropy says it’s too late for that call.
