How I Travel to the Moon

      How I Travel to the Moon

As I sleep, I travel to the moon
Do not know what to expect
Or if I will be returning soon
Surprise to say, some may think that this "planet" is a reject

I find myself upon this escarpment
Looking to the north, I see a glass building two stories tall
This is a greenhouse, and two young children in predicament
A huge Bengal tiger upstairs, waiting for them to fall

These human aliens silently cry out for help
So I intend to put my life on the line, to save these strangers
I cannot bear to see them eaten, and their remains put upon a shelf
To be certain, I am ready to face extreme pain and many dangers.

So I quickly move upstairs; I calm the tiger down
One boy, one girl; so scared, so frozen in time
I talk kind words to these kids and swiftly lead them to the ground
To rescue two kids from certain death, but the glory is not mine

    I have come to realize that my replies may not have been getting through to you so I am attempting a different route . Thank you for seeing the light waves moving across my tiny universe and for your eloquent praise of my attempts at bringing to light one mans journey upon this plane. Bill. ( B. J. “A” 2 ).
