This poem can be listened to.
It may seem far away, I know,
but today Jupiter betrayed Io,
Europa, and Ganymede
electing it was time to feed
on carefree cousin Callisto,
At first it might not bother you.
After all what could you do
to impair or interfere
with affairs of the spheres?
You might not even miss, oh,
But grab a nerd and pull them near.
Ask about the math and hear
how the apparent force involved
no calculator seems to solve.
And wonder just what gripped a hold of
What else might fall within the reach
when the titan decides to feast?
Will Earth and Mars become a snack?
Or are we safer this far back
from the monster planet picking on
