I've docked
My spacecraft to the side

I rocked
The mighty launch astride

I've stocked
A full year's food to hide

I mocked
The Earther fools downside

I walked
The silent space outside

I'm shocked!
The light inside me died

I've locked
My goddamm keys inside

@Downes I hope you didn't really... but this did make me smile.

What's the inspiration?

@lauraritchie I was inspired by two previous small poems (dogtrax and greg) about the silence of space. So imagine space walking and being on top of the world, literally, then discovering you're stuck there. From there made it a story of one's comeuppance. Totally fictional. Meant to create a surprise ending and a chuckle.


This needs to be set to music, hopefully including a theremin.
