Friday not-quite-poetry blogging

Got a whole bunch of Jonathan Coulton songs from ceph a couple weeks ago. This is one of my favorite and more addicting ones:

Chiron Beta Prime
--------------
This year has been a little crazy for the Andersons
You may recall we had some trouble last year
The robot council had us banished to an asteroid
That hasn't undermined our holiday cheer

And we know it's almost Christmas
By the marks we make on the wall
That's our favorite time of the year

Chorus:
Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime
Where we're working in a mine
For our robot overlords
Did I say overlords?
I meant protectors!
Merry Christmas, from Chiron Beta Prime


On every corner there's a giant metal Santa Claus
Who watches over us with glowing red eyes
They carry weapons and they know if you've been bad or good
Not everybody's good but everyone tries

And the rocks outside the airlock
Exude amonia scented snow
It's like a winter wonderland

(Chorus)

That's all the family news that we're allowed to talk about
We really hope you'll come and visit us soon
I mean we're literally begging you to visit us
And make it quick before they [MESSAGE REDACTED]

Now it's time for Christmas dinner
I think the robots sent us a pie
You know I love my soylent green

(Chorus)
--------------

I especially like that the fourth line contains a pun that you won't even realize is a pun until you've listened to the song at least once :)
