Collapsar - Poem by Catherine Lindsey

They call me Collapsar.
I shine like a billion, trillion suns.
I birth black holes when stars implode
the strongest force the universe knows.
Billions of light years away
from the planet known as Earth
nuclear cores molten, polar rays
aimed right at you, watch them burst!
Super Nova, Hyper Nova,
with gaseous afterglow
Bringing gifts of nitrogen
to a world below.
Greener skies, with brownish haze
Ozone depletion, more gamma rays,
red algae on the way.
In giving birth, just look what I've done
In your emerald skies another son,
I shall call them Omega 2 and Alpha 1.
