A momentary glitch
Destroyed satellites overhead.
Mercury moved backwards
Into the sun. Bits and pieces
Of it made their way to Earth,
And survived falling
Through the atmosphere to land
As spicy Red Hots that burn
Tongues and causes
Conversations to be scorched.
The flames died when the yelling
And cursing ceased.
And Mercury returned to its
Regularly scheduled orbit.
