Poetic Swedes In Outer Space Sensation - Poem by Michael Shepherd

Did you see today's news headline?
'Swedes Beam Poetry into Outer Space'
it takes 25 years to get to Vega
and the review comes back 50 years after writing it.

so get your kids to start right now
and in 50 years time the review comes back
when they're 60 years old
'This poetry reads like a ten-year-old's...
is that the best you humans can manage
after all these years? '

space-time has its problems
