Drifting in a deep dark sea
Calm due to the lack of atoms
The occassional exploratory vessel launched
Searching for signs of sentience, or at least biology
Limited supplies
Although some still don’t know it
Or don’t care
Preposterously hugging their grandchildren

Some hoard more than they need
Convincing themselves with Ayn Rand and Horatio Alger
Mistaking inheritence for agency

Some have next to nothing
Convincing themselves with Mother Teresa and Polyrythms
That science is like any other word and the afterlife wouldn’t be boring as fuck

Some die skinny and young
Some die fat and old

All stuck on the same big blue boat
Drifting in a sea of gravity
