Metaphysical musing
Twenty-two point eight trillion miles,
Is the distance to the nearest star,
And trillions upon trillions more,
Are more distant by far.
So when we see those twinkles at night,
Being such a beautiful sight,
Thinking some day we will conquer space,
Remember that for a good while,
Earth will be our place.
So let us look at that distance and shrug,
Our lives are not over,
Until our graves are dug.
