A Space Odyssey


Out around Alpha Centauri
Adrift and lost in space and time
Drifting slowly in the black or space
All I know is control ain't mine

In a tiny craft that is my world
Comets and meteors shoot on by
Passing near and far in my sky
One simple hit and she'll not fly

A black hole waiting to suck me up
The event horizon there somewhere
If it catches me I'll not escape
I'm sorry to say I just don't care

The missiles that fly by are my thoughts
The black hole is found at my core
My mind has turned against me
And when I die it'll be at the fore

That tiny craft is my lonely life
Lost out there around a star
Why this has happened I don't know
All I know is I'll not go far

Before the end comes out of the black
Before a missile from deep in space
Comes shooting in to take me out
Finishes me before I'm done that race

I cannot wait for it to happen
I welcome that end, I long for it
My life is a shambles, worse then hell
I'll not miss it, I'll have no fit

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
