Off Course

With foresight cited,
Launched a dart
Into space,
It’s course they’d chart.

An asteroid aimed
At no where near
The earth or moon -
Not one to fear.

To see if they
Could knock off course
Projectiles aimed
At us with force.

Billions of these
Asteroids fly
And someday one
Will grace our sky.

And make a dent
Or so much worse,
Destroy the life,
Our universe.

They hit the target,
Weeks will wait
Before assessment
Of its fate.

Too bad the science
With a probe
Can’t fix our course
Here on this globe.
