This Shorter Catechism for Atheists

How big is the atom?

The radius of a single one…

…Is 1/10th a billionth of a meter

Itself a string of them end-to-end in line…

…Strung together, microscopic pearls

Or this–

last of all…

…sugar cube congregation

Of atoms–

Held in the palm of one pierced…

…More in number than 

All the stars…

If you can count them…
