Final Flight of the Discovery...

Twelve thousand, half-million, million and more
Picnicking out on the warm-water shore.
Nobody notes that we're always at hand
To watch all the space-ships that take off and land.
Politicians ignore us, the media too...
But if they don't notice, the ships always do.
See her landing so lightly, you'd swear that she cares
That she flies on two wings and a good million prayers.

Witness' Waltz

  1. Reminds me of a quotation I read somewhere . . . "Space isn't far distant from us. It's only about 200 miles away. An easy drive, if your car could go straight up." (paraphrased)
