         The crack of doom shall swallow up this world
         And all that is upon it be destroyed
         Resolved into components unalloyed
         Its atoms rent and into space be hurled.
         Whether it end in fire or end in ice
         By asteroid, or by inconstant sun
         Or by our own works should it be undone
         Its permanence is but the roll of dice.
         The starry vault must teem with life before
         This fragile blue-green bauble meet its end
         Across the sea of suns ourselves we send
         The crib's a grave for those that risk no more.
             So long as life from life to life is hurled
             The crack of doom may swallow up this world.
