While Contemplating Pi

It seems that we were never meant To understand how things are bent. We didn’t know the earth was round And so we thought the sun went down. But nothing is as is observed, The universe itself is curved. The shortest distance to the mark It turns out is a gentle arc. The universe by grand design, Does not contain that first straight line. So, could life and death also be A circular geometry?

I sure as hell hope so,that "life and death also be A circular geometry?". I love physics poetry. I disagree that "we were never meant To understand how things are bent." I think we just need to remember.I have a theory that we lost a bunch of files when we started speaking. Love the lilting optimism.
