Significance and Size

it reads:
The electron is so small
And yet if he is moving
At the wrong speed
Men may die.

Though men are made
Of many electrons:

The machine that flies the plane
Has a circuit
And on the circuit
The electron is king.

How small is the electron you say?
As small as you or I to the galaxy
To you or I.

And the plane is like the cosmos

So when someone tells you
That they are brave to think
Of their smallness in the world
And how insignificant it makes them
And that some people
Are less enlightened
As they don't consider their size

Then remember the electron
Who if he is the right electron
Unbeknownst to others
(And probably even himself)
Can move the entire cosmos
If he goes a little too fast.
