[Neutrinos, They Are Very Small.They Have No Charge And Have No MassAnd Do Not Interact At All.The Earth Is Just A Silly BallTo Them, Through Which They Simply Pass,Like Dustmaids Down A Drafty HallOr Photons Through A Sheet Of Glass.They Snub The Most Exquisite Gas,Ignore The Most Substantial Wall,Cold Shoulder Steel And Sounding Brass,Insult The Stallion In His Stall,And, Scorning Barriers Of Class,Infiltrate You And Me. Like TallAnd Painless Guillotines They FallDown Through Our Heads Into The Grass.At Night, They Enter At NepalAnd Pierce The Lover And His LassFrom Underneath The Bed—you CallIt Wonderful; I Call It Crass.]
