. Disposal on a neutron star


Disposal on a Neutron Star

Our spaceshipfs near a Neutron Star
so small \ just 20 miles in girth
But there itfs Gravity Beware!
A trillion times that on the Earth

The highest mountain on this star
is only millimetres high
And things are also pretty hot
Your washing wonft take long to dry

What if we drop a feather down?
The vacuum lets it just go ezipf
But as it closes in, itfs torn
to shreds as gravity lets rip

The shreds are torn to atoms and
the atoms torn to neutrons too
with protons and electrons squished
together in a cosmic stew

My office shredderfs obsolete
Letfs throw our secret papers out
No jigsaw-puzzle wizard can
reconstitute them, therefs no doubt
