neanderthal astronomer

official name? C/2022 E3 (ZTF)
some kinda comet registration I guess
more snappily known as The Green Comet
a crazy ball of ice or summat
high-tailing it outta the Oort cloud
every 50,000 years or thereabouts

the Oort cloud is a circle of icy crap
on the furthest edge of the solar map

I’m sorry

this particular neanderthal
can’t see any comets at all
as a put on my hoodie and beanie and go
freezing my Oorts off on the patio
scanning the skies without a hope
wishing I had a telescope
