Asteroid Misses

We on Earth today were mostly blessed with luck
We did not have to hide, did not have to duck
Only a fly by way too near
 To strike our Earth so dear
Russia has a huge ice fishing hole in its ice
Windows rattled but no human paid the ultimate price
When it comes to life we suspect that we are not alone
When it comes to rocks we know there are many waiting to find our home
We dodged the bullit due to Kepler's law
But maybe there is a slight flaw
Billions on NASA yet they could not find or detect
Only amateurs assuring us we did not need missiles to try to deflect
