Milky Way Sonnet

Picture, to know how huge our universe
A constellation catalogue of our galaxy
With every penny in Uncle Sam’s purse
We could buy them all for five and twenty
We each would own eight hundred stars
Spanning planets spinning, radiating heat
To patrol these stars in our own space cars
Five and sixty years, all to work one beat
Thirty days a star, systems gone come June
Time flies eight hundred months in space
Earth’s visit but a selfie from the honeymoon
A bright blueberry pie beside your face
In a catalogue some dusty prop for photoshop
Precious Milky Way for sale, twenty five a pop
