Space Shuttle's Last Flight - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

Twin Booms

It’s the last time we will hear the twin booms
Of the space shuttles returning sounds
Breaking the sound barrier in a flash
Is the mission’s last.

An end of an era in space
Wiith mixed blessings to end the race
Between Russiia and the United States
Long ago enemies; now with shared fates.

Engraved forever in memory
Is the break up of one returning shuttle’s reentry
Or the disasterous after launch explosion
Which cut short another mission.

But today, Thursday, July 21,2011
At 5: 56 in the morning the shuttle returned from the heavens
Marking man’s technological mark in the book
To the expanding role that America took.

Each time one uses a “smart phone”
Or “space age” materials at home
Remember the role of NASA
In making it possible to this day.
