moon contest

fly me to the moon
is how the song goes
to find out if It’s made of cheese
or a man lives there that glows

you took me beyond the stars
so many times before
the moon was our next object
now it won’t be so

I will gaze at the moon
imagining what we might have found
maybe that cow
when it was jumping from the ground

or possibly that illusive sixpence
an astronaut or two
Looking for a way home
asking can I come with you

whatever our reason
to fly to the moon
it won’t be fulfilled now
you went beyond too soon
