These galaxies keep spiraling 
Towards an infinite number 

Of impenetrable black holes— 
Don’t they know 

They can only go in so deep.

    What if Someone Important were to be eavesdropping?

    Grounds for Expulsion from the Dead Tree Galaxy Academy!!

  4. I'm a nobody with impeccable credentials--does that qualify me for exemption?
