Black Holes

Black holes are lurking everywhere

Not just in outer space

One swallowed my maths homework

Then left without a trace

The black hole by the dinner table

Snatched my sprouts today

And possibly grabbed grandad last year

When he went away

My lost socks are on Neptune

‘Cause a black hole took them too

They ate the keeper feeding lions

Lunchtime at the zoo

Black holes steal all my self-control 

If my behaviour’s bad 

Remove my hopes and happiness

If I’m upset or sad

Dad says black holes consume our cash

Each time mum goes to shop

They gobble up the sunshine also

Making summers stop

Beware these holes are all around

Deep, endless, dark and black

And anything they suck inside 

Might NOT be coming back!
