Behind The Curtain

Is something unphysical

in charge of this world


That lines every moment,

unseen and unfurled


Scientists say NO,

breathing fire as they shout


What is it then

that scatters atoms about


Darwin had his theory,

well accepted—unproved


That things change themselves

 on condition and mood


But somewhere deep

in the backs of our minds


A notion lay hidden,

firmly placed to remind


This proof we so revel in,

whose truth we revere


Has constantly changed

since the dinosaurs were here


So try to stay open

as new data evolves


Remembering the axioms

it now must resolve


And tune in to something,

not burdened by facts


The rock of all ages

—still blindly intact
