a bridge to the moon

I just finished building
a bridge to the moon.
I started last August
and ended this June.
I used giant branches,
a few million rocks,
unbreakable cables,
and billions of blocks.

The walls on my bridge
are a marvelous sight.
They’re safe and secure
and they light up at night.
The nails are nailed in
and the screws are screwed tight,
but something is wrong here!
This cannot be right!

The moon isn’t orange!
It isn’t that bright!
The moon doesn’t give off
this powerful light!
I have to keep building!
This bridge isn’t done!
For I have just noticed
it leads to the sun!
