If you have read more than a few poems here, you'll know that I absolutely love writing poems with a strong scientific slant. I, of course, am also greatly inspired by the music I love (usually hard rock/metal).That being said, the inspiration from this is a single line from a Black Sabbath song, Snowblind. "The sun no longer sets me free." I thought, well the sun is a pretty cool gal, but in a few billion years, she'll grow red and massive to engulf the Solar System. I figured if a person were around for that, they'd be kind of upset. Submitted at Sunday Scribblings.
