It was A Brief History of Time, a seventy-six year old one.
The 17th Lucasian Professor of Mathematics, showed that
Black Holes could be bought by Heat Dynamics,
We could see The Universe in a Nutshell, and that
We were under a Hawking Radiation.
Even Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis couldn’t stop this four-eyes
From going into The Black Hole War
From engaging in several scientific wagers, winning some and losing some
From denying the existence of Higgs-Boson.
Hell, he didn’t stop even from destroying college boats!
Even the Grim Reaper watched on, as he saw
How Stephen was clinging on to his life
How he was fighting the odds everyday
How he was speaking everyday
How he was writing, everyday
How he was proving and disproving things, everyday
How he was inspiring a million people, every single damn day.
I believe that he was waiting for today, as it is Albert Einstein’s birthday.
People linked him to Galileo, now they will link him to Einstein.
Now that I think more precisely, I would say, it was
A Briefer History of Time.
