OUMUAMUA, DAGGER OF DEATH

OUMUAMUA (1I/2017U1) Dagger of Death

Knife Thrower's Assistant 2

Oumuamua, dagger from space,

is flung at its target end over end –

too fast for any rocket to outpace.

Earth, spun within the Sun’s disc, can’t defend

against this object just recently spied

(though it is the size of a football field) –

a blade ten times as long as it is wide –

packing an impact of megaton yield.

Its name translates to messenger or scout.

Appearing like a harbinger of doom,

from interstellar space it came about,

missing Earth by a tiny bit of room.

Though this did cause some brief consternation,

it’s fading now from our observation.
