Might as well be cold as hell,
this mission was a hard sell.

Blasting off and out of here,
it's been a long time since it was clear,

a long, long time. I packed my bags
but this feeling only serves to drag

me back to earth. Star-gazers
and out of this world trail blazers

are best served in solitary pursuits
not rocketing around in space suits,

Yet still, I'm luckier than some.
I could have wound up Major Tom!

  1. Love the catchy ending, Joseph. I hadn't expected good humour at the finish. :)

  2. Well, being earthbound has to be better than becoming a human satellite, Misky! The idea of floating by my tin can does not thrill! Thanks for stopping by.


I would appreciate feedback on my work. If we don't learn, we'll never grow.
