Doggerel, now that we're warm

Thank You, Sun!
by Christopher Walsh, 3/12/2018





Thank you, Sun!
We respect you a ton.
You've given us one
Light and heat source: of other stars, none
Are close enough to anyone
On Earth to warm one bun.
Though if you were in a scrum
Of suns, suns, and more suns
Earth would be overrun
By light overdone
(And way too much gravity, probably. Too much of it, and life on Earth would be done.
(That wouldn't be fun.)
So. Anyway. Sun.
Thank you. — Everyone
