the solar system : you’re welcome

the solar system
really is some
special kinda family
hanging quite happily
in vast reaches of nuffin
without much other stuff in

the solar system
really isn’t
what you might call tight
if you drove to Neptune
you’d be driving all night

the sun is the hub
of this planetary club
8 of us surrounding it
busy spinning round it
Mercury closest
(but Venus is toastest)
Pluto way out there
basically a nightmare
nothing much but nitrogen gas
plenty enough to freeze yer ass

I saw a clockwork model of the planets
chuntering on in some museum cabinets
I think they called it an orrery
and if I spelt that wrong I’m sorrery
