What’s the matter

When a weasel gnaws through a power cable
and shuts down the Large Hadron Collider.

When I act like a weasel, and sabotage
my happiness, and yours, and hers.

The Higgs Boson is the fundamental particle
that endows matter with mass.

Still I don’t understand the law of gravity,
its pull, this attraction that is irresistible.
