Higgs Boson particle

It matters -- and anti-matters.
We got the universe wrong

then physicists smoked good stuff,
dreamed up boson, gave others work

playing a lifetime with colliders.
We missed the cosmic speedway

dragging particles yon, hither,
failed to see celestial molasses

sticks the universe together.
Forever, we focused on twos:

evil, good; virgin, whore;
yes, no; less, more;

win, lose; hoarded, used --
should have turned off brains on,

gambled, thought big, in fours:
night, dawn, day, dusk;

yes, sometime, maybe, no;
head to war, greet death,

decay in meadow,
wake up to snow.
