By Nanyee Lin

A loner like GalileoWas starstruck
By none other than the mighty stars above

He buried his face in books
And cast people away from his roof
Isolated and aloof
He could only look up
And wonder what it’s like
Up there

One particular gas ball
With orange and yellow mist
Twisted and intertwined
Drifting in the wrath of the Dark
He is lonely
But he’s most definitely not alone
He is accompanied by lovers who lurk in the shadows
There’s Io, Ganymede, Europa, and Callisto
Four sisters with differing personalities and poses
Around around around they go
They’re starstruck by Jupiter, although he still doesn’t know
