Verse and worse

Way out in space, it’s a special occasion
A decade of humans aboard the space station
The crew can’t play football, or bring home fresh prawns
But there’s no noisy neighbours, or mowing of lawns

Looking out to space, Future of Human race, Leave behind no trace, Except flowers in a vase.

I want to be a poet. You're a great teacher!:)

Bernie said...

There was no disgrace to fly through space and leave a mark while there
So she zipped up her suits and put on her boots
While grabbing a brush for her hair
She always loved a mystery and now she's making history
She wanted to do it with flair!

Shadow said...

aaaah, blissful silence for sure!

I wouldn't go out into space
I'd sooner stay safe in my place.
Here it's not rosy
But very cosy
I can pop out & get chips with plaice.

Nuts in May

Hooray to that. Hubby and I could live in outer space just for the quiet.

Ayak said...

Even though men have been to the moon
You won't get me there any time soon
I really hate flying
I'll just end up crying
Life here on earth is a boon.

Precisely, Betsy - I want to join that queue!

Nice comment, LakeViewer - or who's watching them with three eyes!

david mcmahon said...

Yes, Brian - there's no antibiotics for asteroids!

david mcmahon said...

Johnny, I wonder if they have holograms of flowers in a vase?

david mcmahon said...

Virginia, you are way too kind. I am delighted.

david mcmahon said...

Great work, Bernie - it sounds like a 21st century Mrs Jetson.

david mcmahon said...

Shadow - you're so right about the silence. And no phones ringing, either!

david mcmahon said...

Maggie, I always enjoyed fish and chips in the UK .... I'll join you in the queue!

david mcmahon said...

Yes, the quiet would be amazing, TechnoBabe.

You're so right about life on earth being a bonus, Ayak.
