Marble Moon

Letfs shrink the Moon to marble size
A smooth grey ball cupped in your hand
But donft play marbles with it, or
it might just shatter into sand

Letfs set it in a silver clasp
and chain, for use with formal wear
Then at the party they can guess
what stone it is thatfs hanging there

Or how about a cocktail with
two cherries and the Moon on too
Itfs shaken, stirred and downed in one
Tequila Moonrise all for you

What better place to hide the Moon
than in a bowl of hazelnuts
Please nibble at your leisure, but
donft let it get inside your guts

If gambling is your game then come
to Moon Casino, bring friends too
Your fortune will be made if that
roulette Moon ball rolls right for you
