Confusing Astronomy

As the Moon's a balloon,
And the Sun has been spun,
If Saturn's a spoon
And Uranus, your bum.
When Mercury melts,
And Jupiter rocks.
If Venus wears belts
That she stole from Mar's frocks.
As Earth is the third
Little rock from the sun,
Then how have you heard
Which planet I am from.

  1. Last night I had a great night blog-wise. Tonight I haven’t understood much of what I’ve read and I have no idea what I”m going to write. πŸ˜€ But I think I can safely say that I didn’t hear which planet you’re on at all. And equally, I don’t know which planet I’m on either!!

  2. Very fun! I think it might be an accent thing, but is ‘on’ meant to rhyme with ‘sun’? For my accent it would rhyme better with, ‘which planet I’m from.’ on and un are pronounced very differently in my area, On with a fairly wide open mouth and Un with a barely open mouth. From is also barely open mouthed, so though it has an ‘m’ not ‘n’ it sounds similar to ‘sun’ when spoken.
