Venus and the Moon Dance

Venus and the Moon were dancing the Texas Two-Step

Over Arizona’s desert sky one October night

When Saturn showed up and rudely cut in

That is when Venus figured something was not right

Venus beckoned her finger towards Saturn

Inviting him to help in her severe plight

Planning on tripping Saturn on his rotation

Sending him spiraling into space and out of sight

Moon, however, liking the way Saturn danced

Warned him of the intentions planned that night

Saturn did a slippery slide avoiding the intended trip

Continuing the dance much to Moon’s delight

Venus and Saturn spun away on their own path

And decided to dance the Tango in the night

One, two, one two three, then do the dip

They did it right thanks to the bright moonlight
