SCIENTISTS PANICKED BY VANISHED STAR

A massive star without a trace
    Has died away, as most things must.
No fond farewell for us from space,
    A massive star without a trace
Distills the skill to self-efface.
    Black hole? Dimmed in a cloud of dust?
A massive star without a trace
Has died away, as most things must.
