On a strange winter's morning

I awoke with a chill

To find two unknown moons

Rising over the hill

They were larger than Earth's moon,

Or closer to us,

I could not have told,

Using science and such.

 

I could hear wolves howling

From the hills, all around,

And then came the rumbling

And a vibrating sound.

The house started shaking,

The knick-knacks they fell,

And the cabinet-doors opened,

Then closed, as well.

 

Some residents were angry,

Others hunkered in fear,

As the moons slid on by

Being less, and less, near.

"That was a close one,"

Said my neighbor, Clementine,

"Moon-riding should be outlawed,

It should be a galactic crime."

 

Moon-riders Inter-stellar

Should be taken to trial

For their flagrant disregard

And their caviler style.

They say a fly-by is harmless,

It is cool and new!

And with Google as a partner,

What can anyone do?

 

You mark my words,

"Someday there will be trouble!

One fly-by, too close,

There will be nothing but rubble.

But Google won't mind,

They’re now headquartered on "Dione"

They'll be no one to sue

And half their stockholders, gone."
