Today I heard it as for the first time;
Not a jingle, not a jangle:
a lub-dub that sounded like a new invention.
Clearly it’s been there all along, but rarely
do I pay it any attention, like dutiful toes
Marvelous, this built in check and balance
this Bond watch and booster rocket that counts
down to omega, its power covered under casing
tough and beautiful as blue steel.
To hear it, you might have to drop your shoulders;
you might have to slow your mind, perhaps full stop,
same as to suss the inner workings of other things:-
call it a miracle, or call it a mystery; But
you will profit.
