Philip Carter

Rookie - 10 Points (London)

Pioneer 10


Still travelling through space alone
No contact now with home
I do not know where I am
No one cares anymore
I'm not one of the flashy Voyager twins
That everyone talks about
I am Pioneer 10
Sent out years before these upstarts
But I am forgotten by all
An antique relic
A name on a defunct computer
Gathering dust in a basement no one visits
So goodbye Earth, my mother
The place where I was born
Goodbye from your forgotten son.
