Nothing (A poem)

Isn’t it quite something
That something came from nothing?
That nothing could do something
To make it all appear!
But let me tell you something:
Nothing can do nothing!
We all have come from something –
Ain’t that a quaint idea?

So lay the heavy burden
Of proof upon the person
Who in some strange delirium
Holds this hypothesis:
That everything existent
Proceeds from that which isn’t;
That nothing, in its wisdom,
Made such a world as this.
