Stanley Cooper

Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)

Throwing The Bull

The astronaut heading for outer space
Past the Man in the Moons sun-lit face
Won’t have time to give it a wink
He’ll be past the moon before he can blink

That famous cow who jumped over the moon
To hitch a ride would be most opportune
For this space-ship was headed this moon-lit day
Where most cows could excel, The Milky Way

But the cow got no offer to ride on this trip
There wasn’t room on this crowded space-ship
The passenger section was totally full
With a creatures expert at throwing the bull

    Hey Stanley, fun one! You might enjoy my poem 'my mistakes on becoming an astronaut'. Although I don't know if it's as far 'out there' as your poem is! -chuck (Report) Reply
