Space Craft - Poem by Chandra sekharan

Billions worth space craft with four astronauts
were blasted off from launch pad
with thundering sound,
Thick huge smoke, spark and fire
Engulfed the entire area
Initially it travelled vertically, then tilted and
Rocketed towards outer space
They are on a voyage to study other planets
As well as our planet
Even after several centuries
We are yet to study the secrets of
Our own planet
Zooming space craft was watched
By millions in televisions
Billions of children, pregnant women and
Elderly population
Without even food and shelter could not watch
They are struggling for survival
Millions are being annihilated
Mercilessly by Tsunami, cyclone and earthquake
And the question remains unanswered
Why we spend billions and trillions
For space craft which some times
Would kill even astronauts also.
