LM on Moon

Little LM who made thee
         Dost thou know who made thee
Gave thee juice & bid thee fly.
From the CM & o’er lunar sky;
Gave thee coatings of delight,
Shiny coatings gleaming bright;
Gave thee such a spidery shape,
Making all the mares gape!
         Little LM who made thee
         Dost thou know who made thee

Shoemaker-Levy2

If oblivion is the only way
I’d choose exact same path as you

with one last lap around the Sun
final warmth and final view

then wander off for another thrill

straight to the sleeping giant
hovering round him awhile

waiting for the perfect moment
to poke him in his side

and when he growls awake
tease him with a brilliant laughing good-bye
and enter night.
