Higgs Boson Living - Poem by bill costley

I was winding my old watch
when the World ended,
or I thought I was.

I'm not sure what time it was,
what time zone I was in.

Time no longer mattered,
I thought, matter no longer,
nor felt quite the same.

I blamed Higgs Boson particularly,
Harold Camping, numerically,
& contined to wind my watch.

I'm probably still winding it.
