Hey, We’re Goin To The Moon!

by R.L. Wisdom

I, along w/

           about 200 other americans

      (and 200 russians, grumble, grumble)

          boarded a ship
                    slated to launch
                              into space.

It was part of an experiment

          to shuttle large numbers
                                        of people
          in order
                    to assess

          The ship was extremely large
                    w/ multiple levels.
          During liftoff people were
                    roaming around,
                    acting indifferent.
There was an oversight during
          pre-launch checklists,
and
          a certain wire
     wasn’t
          properly connected.
But
                                   they got to it
          just before the engines
               exploded,

          and up we went.

The ride there
          was uneventful.

But I remember the general feeling
          around the ship
               was that

IT WAS GREAT TO EXPERIENCE SPACE

                    but we would
                    probably not
                    survive re-entry.
