Astronomists have a new theory|
Involving an alternate Sun
It helps explain the meteorites
That regularly cause extinction.
Every twenty six million years (or so)|
A shower of rocks hits the Earth
Cosmic scientists wish to show
What gives these missiles their birth.
They argue the Sun has a brother|
Who makes a regular visit
Mostly travelling through Space Outer
To celestial trash a magnet.
When he returns to see his sibling|
He tosses off meteor showers
Like some astronomical Quisling
Who allied with Axis Powers.
As we're thirteen million years|
Into the next extinction cycle
Scientists have their fears
About the species survival.
I think I'll stick around|
Not just to see what'll happen
By fatherly duty I am bound
I must protect my children!
