Poem – The Astronaut


I wanted to ask the astronaut
who spoke to
a captured audience:
With all the technology used
to boost you into space,
to save fuel,
capture the sun’s rays
for energy,
to propel you
around our beautiful orb
so you can experiment
and charter new frontiers,
when you come back
down to earth,
do you see
how that can be applied
here
and now
so we can stay
and enjoy it
a bit longer?

Inspired on May 25, 2007 after a talk by Dr. Steve MacLean at the 44th DPI Professional Development Week conference.
