Some scientists set out to prove
the moon is made of cheese;
the evidence they discover means
that everyone agrees
The surface of the moon
has bubbled into craters
caused, they think, by heating cheese
that's been through giant graters.
Satisfied that they are right,
the scientists now boast
that, some day soon, they're sure to find
a planet made of toast.
