Top This Television Moment

Rating: 5.0
you shouldve been there
everybody else was
at least it seemed
in july
in nineteen
and sixty-nine a d
i sat at my desk in school
like all the others
gorging on the greatness of it all
on this spectacle of vertical
liftoff from the earth
this reaching beyond ourselves
this voyage of all mankind
happening before my very eyes
we were mesmerized
by the seduction of the beast
the saturn five series rocket
the behemoth we
held our breath we
held on to each other we
were speechless in
fact in awe of it
of everything
every one of us
everyone wanting
to cheer out loud oh
cmon lets light this candle
lets do this and
lets do the other thing
lets soar to the stars
and beyond
lets seize the glory
we fucking rock
watch us walk
on the moon
