On The Discovery Of The Higgs Boson - Poem by Maureen Travers

We thought that the gods were giants,
Mighty beings with universe sized minds,
But today we learned the awful truth -
A particle so small it cannot be seen
Has been discovered; using man's ingenuity
And a huge accelerator, the Higgs Boson has been found;
A tiny particle which gives us mass and form;
Without it we would not exist.
Perhaps it also gives us soul,
Perhaps this is our god.
