From my windowsill on Jupiter

It rains diamonds here and still,

the real estate market is barren.

A few years ago, a red tornado raged through the town,

wrecking shops and schools from Europa to Callisto.

Jets whirred off to find a home,

but I, from my windowsill on Jupiter,

stayed to count the diamonds that pitter patter onto the porch.
