Planetary Paean

Mercurial dreams crumble to dust
stars crushed beneath your feet
Venetian passion evaporates
Stagnating on earth,
your visions of exploration eclipsed

Let some Martian anger
course through your veins
Be guided by the wisdom of Jupiter,
as you fearlessly plough
a lonely Saturnian furrow
Rule, once more,
the Uranian skies
Ride on Neptunian
waves of discovery

Set your course
for the heavens
Unshackle your soul
soar to your destiny
