- We Didn'T! : : Humour - Poem by Alessandra Liverani

They've been to the moon and back six times, no less
Got dropped off and picked up, I was impressed
For many years, I never questioned this outstanding feat
Didn't even know others thought there had been a deceit

But recently I started reading what the sceptics had to say
I pondered, I wondered, had we really been betrayed
The flag fluttering in the breeze, footprints etched in dry dust
Shadows at all angles, could it be explained without fuss

“Mythblusterers” attempted to convince us on TV
Except on television, again, there may be tricks you can't see
Prove it on television, come on, it’s got to be done live
With investigators checking and watching that nothing’s been contrived

It was claimed the fluttering flag was under centripetal force
And they even proved it (on television) , I laughed myself hoarse
The footprint: that was explained using magical dust
How this powder was made, well, we were just asked to trust

Will Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin go to their grave
With the truth still locked inside, or could they be so brave
To become honest men and let everyone hear
That they never landed on our neighbouring sphere

(Sydney, Australia - 2009)
