MERCURY

 

(scroll down for YouTube video)

 

New wordplay

On a Mercury Retrograde day

Freddie Mercury

Now the eponymous owner

Of an asteroid

Named by his lead guitarist

Turned Astrophysicist

Brian May

 

Who among us crazy music lovers

Didn’t at one time

Howl out:  Scaramouch, Scaramouch

Can you do the fandango

While driving caffeinated

Through dark dawns

Music momentarily transforming us

Into Superman

Before arriving at work to

Become meek and mild Clark Kent

 

What good news

At a time when Mercury whirls backwards

Tripping up communications and travel

I’m sure I saw the asteroid last night

Peering into a sky of delight

It is our turn to rock you, Freddie

We will…we will…
