only inches deep

shock is when ocean's only inches deep
when mighty rivers turn out to be rills
the himalayas just some bumps and hills
each mighty hero just another creep
what we have given turns out to be cheap
compared to what we see on others' bills
we find that what was written in their wills
was never final we have gone to sleep
the giant turns out to have been a child
and mighty struggles no more than a game
what we thought mighty forest is just park
nothing is left that's disordered and wild
the universe is now fenced-in and tame
and nothing's left we could call truly dark
