We are grateful to our creators
who at the time of the Big Bang
instintively hurled themselves to the ground
and like good citizens counted to 15
in accordance with Switzerland's nuclear regulations.
For otherwise we wouldn't be here at all.
We atomic children don't want to moralize
or reproach anyone;
we simply want you to get used to us
and grow to love us.
But for you we can offer no guarantees,
because as soon as we gain the upper hand
you will be classed as abnormal and as a result
may well have to suffer.
