On a strange winter's morning

I awoke with a chill

To find unknown moons

Rising over the hill.

These moons were rather small

But close enough to feel

Their gravitational effects

Were bone-chilling real.

 

 

I could hear wolves howling

From the hills, all around,

And then came the rumbling

As vibrations moved the ground.

The house started shaking,

The knick-knacks, they all fell,

The cabinet-doors swung wildly

Like the ringing of a bell.

 

***

 

Some residents were angry,

Others prayed for God's good grace,

As both the moons zipped on by

Streaking off to outer-space.

"That was a close one,"

Said my neighbor, Kennith Bale,

"Moon-riding should be outlawed,

They should toss them all in jail!"

 

"Moon-riders Inter-stellar"

Should be taken right to trial

For their flagrant disregard

And their caviler style.

They say, "It's all just business.

"We just shake a city, or two.

And with Google as our partner

There ain't nothing you can do!"

 

"You mark my words," Bale replied,

"Someday there will be trouble,

A fly-by here, a fly-by there,

Then our cities will turn to rubble!"

 I shook my head and walked away.

How could I tell that feller

That I own 30,000 shares

Of "Moon-riders Inter-stellar?"
