flat circle, cosmic turtle

All Knowing

A little old lady
claims the world is a flat circle
balanced on the back of a cosmic turtle
and that turtle
rests on the back of another turtle
and it’s turtles all the way down.

We know better.
We know there was that nothing
which exploded in big bang
leaving this something.

And our something
that came from nothing
is expanding
into the something that wasn’t
before this something was.

Turtle  Nothing
big bad boom Great Tortoise
Turtle Something.

And into this turtle nothing
the turtle god
gave its turtle son turtle death
and turtle rising
saving the turtle egged
from designer defect.

The old lady was right
it’s turtles all the way down.
