I am sure that a vast majority of people who frequent this website have at least heard of Douglas Adams and his infamous The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. One day I was, how should I put it, inspired (ie bored out of my mind), and came up with the following. I'd like to hear your comments and improvement suggestions.

           -- 42 --

When you wonder what's the point
   of this ever changing world,
just elude, but don't disjoint
   the great truth of eons furled.

For example, let's consider
   a machine of great design,
which is likely to appear
   in most unlikely space and time.
Powered by a crude creation
   only genius could derive,
At the heart of this aberration
   lies the Infinite Improbability Drive.

If this notion is too complex
   for you to grasp and comprehend,
Here's another demonstration
   for your gray matter to transcend.
With one gigawatt of power
   and a solidly formed plan
You can change the year and hour
   with an old DeLorean.

There are many more examples
   contradicting God's designs
All of which bestow "great vengeance"
   through attempts "to poison" our minds.
It's, in fact, so controversial,
   that, when asked to prove a fact,
God refused, and in a puff of logic
   promptly pulled a vanishing act.

Here enlies this poem's moral
	for your brain to stew and chew
never struggle, never quarrel
	over meaning of 42.
