Footnote: A Thought About Cosmology

[after Aquilam's haiku, "Why Astronomy?"]

 

The human species
astronomizes---study

of the Cosmos.  What

if the Cosmos assigns grade?---
Pass or Fail?  What should we say?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The website https://aquillam.wordpress.com/2010/06/29/astronomy-haiku/ attributes the poem to the mononymic Aquilam, but I am not sure if that might be, perhaps, a typo or spacer, and the attribution should be Aquila.  The mononym belongs to the astronmer, Shannon Murphy.

 

According to a Google search, the verb astronomizes is proper gramtically.
