Earthly Thoughts (Part Two: The Sequel) ©
we lock ourselves in queer bubbles -
is that really HOW we see them?
Around our world,
bombs detonate like tic-tac clocks
we fake smiley faces
(all but a reality show!)
Launch - pad,
Houston fixes all our problems;
....is that really WHAT we dream of?
Our souls orbit around Saturn
leaving behind junk and poison...
Like lone rangers,
we stick our minds to thick portholes
to check rivets and fuselage
we still gaze at our Moon.
we mixed our genes to let them fly -
is that REALLY what we're
Some saw Elvis dance on his grave,
they swapped a smile;
others don't dare,
our wings will take us high.
