After about half an hour of bewilderment, Andy rushed over to his boss' office.

"Sir I think I've solved this second cryptogram, but it makes no sense"

VNTS RYYW KYU CZOL ERZOGST ZUZL UG ZDG BDYC SKG TNO

"Hmm.........I have the same problem. Maybe this cipher is related to the others"

After mulling over the codes some more, Hyde startled Andy by exclaiming "Ha!"

He had a big grin on his face. "Bad poetry and weird math go together with these freaks!"

Andy was totally bewildered, "What are you talking about sir?"

Four numbers tell a tale
Lined in series they form a trail
Hidden among them is another for more fun
Just look how many planets away we are from the sun

If you count the number of letters in each of the four lines of the message, you'll see something interesting. A number series "forms a trail"

20.., 27.., 34.., 41

Of course, the number "hidden between" them is 7.

The last cryptogram the 'aliens' sent, had the number series 16.., 23.., 30.., 37 corresponding to the number of letters in each of that messages lines. Clearly a similar pattern to this present message.

If you've read Part 1 in this quirky adventure, you'd realize that Uranus is the 7th planet from the sun. Bad poetry and weird math indeed!
