The String-Bound Universe
Of covering, of centering, of quartering, with strings;
Of renderings, engendering; a story of many things.
The subtle throb of sub-nanoscopic strings;
Existence into the realm of reality it brings;
So pronounce the learned cosmologists.
To simply explain in the practical domain;
An analogy with notional parity too to maintain
Will be, a note strung by instrumentalists.
These are the thoughts precise, that invariably rise;
Whenever I happen to see the musical device;
That not long ago, elegantly adorned our attic;
An occasional inspiration, to effect articulation
Of a melodious, harmonic, sense-enunciation,
Would have me pluck it and go intensely ecstatic.
Then occurred a muser, an ingenious seducer;
To fashion a mannequin as the device user,
And have her grace our cozy living space.
Soon the rumination transformed, quite unharmed;
Its ramifications enthralling all those informed,
She was to have the likeness of my wife's face.
To keep with the theme, I devised a scheme,
Of construction under a string-full regime,
That on paper sported a delicate demeanor;
With strings of every kind, all intertwined;
When concepts, fiber, and metal, combined;
In strength, there wasn't one more meaner.
Four months it had taken; with focus unshaken;
To make poise and beauty in her awaken;
It was indeed a labor of love and devotion.
But it led to a situation, filled with consternation,
Put me in a spot of immense botheration;
My affection for it caused a big commotion.
'Twas no surprise, that there was a compromise,
To spill details, on my part, utterly unwise;
When the matter is one between those I adore.
Suffice to say, that peace does hold sway;
The replica presides, the real directs night and day;
And I have no dominion over my life any more.
A consolatory thought, after the damage is wrought,
Is that the string-theory declares this to be ought;
In truth though, the only thing it does is confound.
With a logic so sound, no longer does it astound,
If the notion, one were to forcefully expound;
That the universe and existence is all string-bound.
