Be careful what analogies you use.

Sometimes they are literally taken

and could misrepresent, mislead, confuse,

or trap in a premise that’s mistaken

the very minds that you seek to inform

about the design and nature of things,

and, worse, it could just cause them to conform

to notions false and erred meanderings.


The Big Bang never made a single boom.

Expansion’s not the same as inflation.

The cosmos is not quite like a balloon.

These comparisons need explanation,

or else you convey the wrong perception,

and way off base will be the conception.
