When µWorlds Collide

It's said, behind ev'ry Higgs field of dreams
There lies a Higgs boson shooting from beams
Of colliding hadrons seen only in streams
Of data awaited
Patiently by international teams
With hopes inflated.

What is gravity? What is dark matter?
Can answers be found in Hadron's scatter?
Or will it all be just so much chatter?
Who then has a clue
If Standard Models begin to shatter?
Or at least unglue?
