If all the atoms that there are
Throughout the universe
Were placed inside a cookie jar,
Then we’d be none the worse.

For consciousness – or so it’s said –
Is all there’s thought to be.
It’s hard to get that in my head,
But, maybe, that’s just me.

Perhaps I’m simply too obtuse
To fully understand.
Although that’s but a weak excuse,
It’s all I have to hand.

And yet, when all is said and done,
Can life be known by anyone?
