Solar System 02:49
Woke up this morning and found myself gravitationaly bound in a system of the Sun And of all the objects that orbit the Sun And of all of the objects, I'm one of those objects that orbit the Sun For thousands of years, we humans worshiped the Sun Not knowing its system Earth was clearly the center of the universe I'm no dwarf planet Just a small solar system body God might well might damn it My small solar system body's naughty and not so haughty

Why this span of misfortune down on Earth? Why is everything scrambled and spinning out of control? It makes me curse, it's getting worse I'm going burst at the end of this verse O Mercury when you're in retrograde The check will bounce and we won't be paid Our travel plans to the north will suddenly go south And we'd better closely watch what comes out of our mouths Tits up again, my machine went tits up again In between my fits of rage which go all the way to 10 Time is going backwards inside Big Ben I prefer to leave the office and live in a glen Away from the cockamamie inventions of men O Mercury you've gone retrograde again Better not to speak a plan or fly in a plane O Mercury, when will this ever end? Remind me not to hit 'Send' I'll remain under the covers of my bed Until I get the word from the front lines of the universe that all is sane again

My triple-great grandfather on my mother's side Was a government astronomer by the name of Asaph Hall He wanted to prove the existence of the moons of Mars So he studied the skies every night with his fancy telescope But saw nothing, nothing up there except for the Planet of War And occasional shooting stars in front of the universe's door Utterly frustrated, he almost threw in his glove But his wife Angelina (nee Stickney) urged him to look above In August of 1877 the moons of Mars revealed themselves to Asaph who now suddenly loved his wife more than ever He named the moons Phobos and Deimos after the horses who pulled the chariot of the War God 94 years later NASA's space craft passed by the moons And saw the huge crater on Phobos' loins So they named it after Asaph's intrepid wife, using her maiden name Stickney the crater was almost greater than half the diameter of Phobos' parameters Stickney the crater result of a fate or a destiny writ large by the universe

Venus Envy 02:55
Venus envy what dicks can't see Venus envy for power panties Mothers bakers troublemakers Super power to procreate hers Movers and shakers Venus rhymes with penis Penis can you see us? Romulus killed Remus after suckling a she wolf She wolf can redeem us Romulus and Remus Urge to kill extrem-us Sticky cold wet dream-us

Wolf Moon 03:19
Wolf moon rising feel the sun Wolf moon shadows on the run Cedar branches write a tale Wolf moon rising howling pale Wolf moon rising turns blood red Ancestors confiding the whispering dead Cedar branches etch the light Wolf moon turning red this night
