The Space Traveler

One day Liam was out
strolling
when down came a
space ship
frightened he saw
the door open
and out, quite
casually strolled

His old feathered 
friend the Duck
"sit down and
listen" my Irish
friend
"I have been to
space visited the
moon
and spoke to the man
who dwells there."

"On we went to
Jupiter, Mars and
Pluto
passed through the
Milky Way and Plough
Then I thought, Liam
should be here too
jump aboard and we
will fly the
universe."

With fear in his
heart Liam joined
Duck
strapped in he
stared in awe and
wonder
as in seconds they
were circling Saturn
"Look ahead", said
Duck, "There is
Frog"

A very merry reunion
was had by them all 
Liam scratched his
head "I can not
trust
the two of you out
of my sight. "Fairy
tale animals you are
supposed to be."

Not space travelers.
Frog said quite
logically. "I can
not find a princess
on earth to kiss so
I can be a prince
up here who knows
the sky's the
limit."

Duck joined in "I
can fly around
earth,
up here I am
completely free and
weightless
and up here I have
the power of speech"
 
Liam thought and
said, "I agree lets
stay"


Liam has been
writing about Duck
for
some time joined by
Frog in fishnet
tights
I kid you not. Time
they went universal.
