1st Place: Ken Lucus
There are those who'll go nowhere near it

But I see no reason to fear it.

The question going around:

Does a Big Bang make a sound

If no ear has evolved yet to hear it?

 

2nd Place: Susan Rappoport
For Dawkins so loved the Universe's glory

Animals, mountains, cells and aurorae.

He lays truths on the table

with no need for fable

So we see our right place in the story.

 

3rd Place: John Christian
Our Richard had an appetite for wonder,
The bigger questions he did often ponder.
To the pious in his way
He can't help but to say
"Of Science, bitches, I am fonder"
