COSMIC RECALCULATION

-- to Dr. Wendy L. Freedman

In the cosmos, a crisis brews today,

regarding the standard model that’s held.

“Things expand too fast,” astronomers say,

“The Hubble constant is being excelled.

“We’ve graphed predictions and made a table,

but Expansion’s chosen another path.

Unfortunately, we are unable

to force Creation to follow our math.

“The discrepancy’s nearly nine percent,

between expectations and what we view.”

This causes cosmologists to lament,

“We may need physics entirely new.”

This prospect prompts a great consternation,

since starting fresh brings small consolation.
