The Asteroidea Idea

by Dan Campion

“How many arms do starfish have? If you said ‘five,’ you’re wrong.”
The Washington Post

The starfish has five arms, it’s said,
But lately research shows
Those “arms” are actually its head.
How human knowledge grows!

Eventually, we may detect
Five points we can agree on,
And, armed with stellar intellect,
Embrace a peaceful eon.
