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 andsaid, "I agree lets stay"
