Astro-nuts

A space probe passed Ultima Thule*/

And sent back a pic of it duly;/

The photo recalls/

A snowman, or balls,/

With one large and one smaller goolie**.///

*Pronunciation note: that’s right, it’s thoolie.

**Vocabulary note: this may be UK only, and more often used in the plural – as in ‘a kick in the goolies’.
