High up in the Milky Way
The space cows gently moo,
Their farts make up the solar wind
(I bet you never knew).
They’re milked by Martian menials
Who give a kindly squeeze,
Then churn the milk the whole night through
To make the moon’s green cheese.
Just before they snooze each night
They stop and chew the cud,
And now and then fall down to earth
With one astounding thud.
People see the holes they’ve made
‘A meteor? But how?’
But we know that each shooting star
Is just a falling cow.
