The Milky Way is fun-sized as the candy bar says

Swirling in my mouth and swirling overhead

Millionfold stars banded in one luminous light

What a glorious sky to behold brightly tonight

Ancient mythtellers filled with awe knew not what they were seeing

We believers of science today know and yet share the same feeling
