Poetry in a Pandemic: Going to Jupiter
Maybe I could go to Jupiter
Here, we can’t get any stupider.
Neptune’s nice this time of year
They like each other there, I hear.
Is it time to visit Saturn?
I’m weary of our planet’s pattern.
Study hard and learn Venusian
I’m not sure that’s the solution.
Our solar system’s fairly small
But I’m not going to name them all
I guess I’ll stay on planet three
Despite the lack of harmony.
