Does It Matter?



There's lots of room in intergalactic space,
So it's rare when two hydrogen atoms arrive at the same place;
Especially two of opposite spin.
So be it, and barring unusual magnetism,
They will form a para-hydrogen bond to mate;
Entering into a singlet state.
Their home is of a cold and vacuous norm,
Keeping them in a diatomic solid form.
Such is the stable life of our most prevalent
Universal constituent.
