Tuck us in

Gravity swaddled baby Earth in gas.

Earth grew complex, blue and green.

CO2 and H2O wove a gossamer blanket

To keep us warm.

 

We are kicking and tearing the blanket now.

Where is the universe’s nurse

To tuck us back in,

Layer by layer?

 

First, atmosphere.

Next, troposphere.
Then ionosphere.

So we can sleep tight,

Free from the latest kind of fear.
