The Dellotronian spaceship leaves hyperspace
At a deep-space solar system on the galaxy fringe.
“There they are!” announces the Watch,
“The planet twins.”
“Second and third planets?” the captain asks.
Computer says the second one teemed with life,
Before the third planet
“Because each in turn succumbed
To global warming.
We cannot land on either:
Both are covered with lava flows,
And crushed by high pressure carbon-dioxide.”
“Venus and Earth.”
