Odd Planets

A planetfs shape is up for grabs
If on a thin disc you reside
when digging down, potatoes would
get pushed out on the other side

And if you live on Planet Rod
be careful how you place your shoe
Since one false move and you might slice
the planet into two (no glue)

The Planet Helix would be fun
Go round and round, go to and fro
Play games, and jump from rung to rung
But donft compress it and let go

And what about the Planet Dot?
It's hardly there, just football-sized
Nowhere to sit, just stand up straight \
not ‘cosy’ like they advertised

But Planet Bubble is the worst
Outside \ boys unmistakable
who look for girls all safe inside
through crystal thatfs unbreakable
