With the shocking discovery of the Long Ear Nebula,
The Sagging Eyelid Galaxy and the Double Chin Globular Cluster,
Astronomers were forced to concede
That the heavens indeed constituted the face of God,
Even if religious leaders for their part then
Had to concede the divine visage was not as they had foreseen,
And that given its age already, and the time taken for light
To reach the Earth, the deity in question 
Was most likely not merely old 
And decrepit, but very long dead,
Thus scoring a cosmic win-win and lose-lose all in one,
And leaving all in the dark, and rather alone.
