All-star show

Cassiopeia is on lead guitar,
Centaurus is on drums,
Virgo toots a saxophone
and Gemini just hums.

Orion is lead singer
in the all-star cosmic show.
Canis Major sings the high notes,
Canis Minor, those below.

All around us, every night,
the cosmic party jives,
the syncopated rhythms
of our constellated lives.

No need to buy a ticket,
free entry at the door.
Enjoy the music while it lasts
— there won’t be an encore.
