A brief rumination on Neal Stephenson’s new book, SEVENEVES

(The title of which, a friend pointed out, is a palindrome.)

I have been reading Seveneves,
The new big book from Neal Stephes[1]:
The moon breaks in seven peaze,
Each piece has seven paths,
Each path has seven maths.
Some maths are delta-Vs, and
The plot has many keys[2].
Characters, sub-plots and lots of peaze,
Many pages is Seveneves.

[1] Stephenson, that is, of course
[2] Including hams doing Morse code, and some, cough, paper pads
