The Long Lonely Voyage




In a galaxy far, far, away
on a daring mission to a distant sun,
flew a gregarious Captain Ray,
aboard his spaceship, The Naughty One.

Across the tumultuous cosmos
past the whimsical quixotic zone
he rode his scurrilous missile
like an amiable vertical bone.

When he reached the forlorn planet
he guided his hedonistic ship
deep inside a hot steaming crater
then fired his thrusters from the hip.

Some say Ray was reprehensible.
Some say the blame should fall on us.
But I say he was a lustful eccentric
the day he probed Uranus.
