Treasure Island

July 21,1969- The Eagle has landed


Houston we have landed
It is one small step,
To land on the moon in this decade,
Just as JFK promised.

Not because it was easy
But because it was hard,
That is what he said,
And that is what we did!

The only problem was since those words
Were said our country had changed.
Gone are JFK, RFK, and MLK
Gone is LBJ,
Now Nixon is the one,
But objective remained the same
To land on the moon
No matter what the cost

On this summer day in 1969
We all came a little closer together
As we saw
The first man walk on the moon.

Now we may find
That he didn't walk on the moon at all.

A Government that lies about a break in
Could they tell a story about something else?
Now as we look up towards the moon,
Let us remember that special day
When are attention was directed to man who walked on the moon.

July 21,1969 the Eagle had landed
Now the question is where did in land?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
