YOU SEE(WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN
on the surface of the moon
and in orbit round that orb
and this changes everything!
Once,this bone cold ivory rock
spun in space from a poetic distance
Now we have photos and moon rocks
under our immediate gaze.Movies made
incorporating actual space footage.
No longer dare we stare from a poetic distance
Science takes over,presents video evidence
No "man "on the moon.No "green cheese"
Wallace &Grommit replaced by NASA space tapes
Romance always enhanced by an element of distance
O well-perhaps now we can fall in love
with a Mission to Mars...
