Solar System Poems 14: Juicy Science

It is there in black and white
and also many shades of gray.
Majestically doing laps around the king
while his other lovers fly at twice, four times the pace

It is all there if you dig deep enough:
Ice and rock and metal.
Bigger than Mercury and more magnetic,
as neato-keen as its neighbors
if admittedly somewhat less groovy.

When we put our mind to it
it will surely offer us cups of
juicy science
even if there are no ships
buried in the shadows.
