Oh Dear (3)

Making light of dark matter

Oh, dear, where can the matter be?
Can't find the mass to account for the gravity
Keeping continuum's curvature unity--
Where can the dark matter be?

Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Can't be just atoms and scattered old star debris,
That stuff shows up in absorption spectroscopy --
what can that strange matter be?

Oh, dear, why must the matter be?
Just to keep faith in the Big Bang catastrophe,
Latter-day guise of Augustine cosmology.
Fiat!  The matter must be.
