Members of Coo & Co thank Hans Bump for the challenge. It turns out that Mercury can rap.
Rhythm: co-co-COO :>o

Pocket Planet

Oy, stop pickin' on me. Yeh, I'm smallest of all
of the planets that circle our Sun
and I ain't very colourful -- 'Just a grey ball,'
you sniff, Venus; hey, thanks for that, hun.

Well, I might not be Jupiter, moony old chap;
I ain't Saturn, with all of his rings;
but I reckon I'd manage if we had a scrap
'cos I got rocks an' ridges an' t'ings.

And besides, what is size if you're all full of gas?
You'd just burst if you ever came near,
an' that burst would leave... what? Not a great deal of mass.
I'd be biggest. Me, Merc. Are we clear?

hehehe... I love it! This is so fun, brought a huge smile to my face, and made me happy this morning. My mind sets up the scene fabulously with your lines, and makes me see it like those rap battles the genre are fond of... Merc's all psyched up to get his point and position across, with arms crossed (figuratively), and a confident stance. Throwing some shade, as they say ;) This really got my imagination going, and I very much enjoyed, thanks.
