What was there to slow cosmic inflation,
which occurred shortly after the Big Bang?
Nothing obstructed this fomentation,
which from an infinitely dense point sprang.
The claim is expansion somehow reduced
its speed, the second after Creation,
(yet, through observation, it’s been deduced
there’s still light-speed-limit violation).
As though this were viewed – aloof and astute –
some claim the cosmos first increased its size,
from sub-atomic limit to grapefruit,
then paused, allowing heat to equalize.
But no one can say what put on the brake
and then released it for the heaven’s sake.
