What is the metric for the spacetime around an infinitely thin, infinitely long, uniform rod? Could it be written in the form(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ds^{2}= A(r)dt^{2}+ B(r)dr^{2}+ C(r)dh^{2}+ r^{2}dθ^{2}

where h is the coordinate along the rod and r is the radial coordinate, or would it be something more complicated?
