Callisto Capriccioso

Callisto perfetto
A speckled frigid moon
With stunning views of Jupiter
Enough to make you swoon

Callisto prunello
As old as old can be
With craters, wrinkles, spots and all
And subterranean sea

Callisto notturno
Your skyfs so clear at night
When Galileo saw you first
He got a thrill all right

Callisto maestoso
Serene in orbit true
Same hemisphere in inward pose
No moon to bump into

Callisto Mephisto
What lurks inside your core?
A horde of alien spaceships or
a viral swarm, or more?
