The super stadium sustains all games.
Planted, planked, padded, paved, painted,
Territories to be won and winnings counted.
The stadt is a city, and the city has a place
Where the populace gathers to witness
Winnings and losses each by each.
The larger world is a small stadium
Devoted to demonstrating how the universe
Works by chance, by determination.
By intelligent design do we know disarray,
The way things fall apart, how we dis –
Remember the important things.
Stupidly, we see and hear and say
What needs to be said, heard, seen,
While we still can, not when not.
