An Insurance of Universe

After reading news
That in years few
Universe will collapse
So to get solace
I ran to the Insurance Company
with request to insured the universe completely
And to my utter surprise
The crooked company readily obliged.

    True the fellas know it very well when something'll surely not collapse and if collapsed the Maturity sum need not be paid.They must have thought you a promising client.

    hey Dr., Fun and frolic as Anjali says and a sting at our sense of over security against providence. What a brief but wonderful write.
