The speed of the black hole as it nears light
Remained no match for astrophysicists
Who snapped the shot of the Virgo orange, bright.
Their thorough work stood as the blessed gist.
Surrounded by an orange glow which bleeds,
The photo shows that the theories were true.
White spots looked like the drops of orange seeds.
The move gave the scientists their just due.
At six point five billion solar masses
The Virgo black hole could swallow up all
Of the solids, liquids, and gasses.
The pic was a lasting reach out and call.
All of the scientists should take a bow
The question remains: what snapshot now?
