Beware of Black Holes

Ifm fooling around near a whopping black hole
With my orbiting ship under total control

The Event Horizonfs just two feet from here
And Schwarzschild predicts that wefve nothing to fear

But they say for a dare, poke your toe down below
So letfs open a hatch, and lfll give it a go

I lower my boot down three feet, itfs no sweat
The maths of black holes is just theory, Ifll bet

That nothing comes back once it goes down beyond
Oops, seems my bootfs stuck now. Oh no, I was conned!
