The Eight Planets



Somewhere in space there was a sun

It had 8 planets that all spun


Around and around they went

Space and time were bent


Bent by a force named gravity

A little solar system in a vast galaxy


Mercury was closest to the star

It was the smallest planet by far


After that came Venus

Extreme heat was its uniqueness


Then came a place called Earth

A blue marble where life had given birth


Mars was fourth in line

It had tall red mountains to climb


Next up was gas giant Jupiter

2.5x bigger than all others put together


Saturn came after that

It had beautiful rings to gaze at


Uranus was number seven

An ice giant where everyday frost was given


The last one was Neptune

A blue world with 14 frozen moons


The sun was the life source of them all

A massive hydrogen and helium ball


The solar system lasted for 10 billion earth years

Until the red giant vaporised all 8 spheres


It was beautiful while it lasted

It was beautiful when everything blasted
