All of my doors are double locked.
This world’s a dangerous place.
But I’m not prepared for hazards
That come from outer space.

Forty seven hundred asteroids
Lurk near our precious Earth.
As ways to intercept them,
There truly is a dearth.

Just recently an asteroid
Raced through the Russian sky.
If one of those monsters ever hit.
All life on Earth could die.

I am thankful to the scientists
Who have tracked each asteroid.
I’m relying on their diligence
Earth’s destruction to avoid.
