wish i might


'star light   star bright   

first star i see tonight

wish i may   wish i might

have the wish i wish tonight'


please   i wish to leave the moon as is

please   no habitats   no mining   

please   no more flags impaling the surface

please   no nike swooshes


please   let moonglow always be 

the romantic light that ignites lovers' passion

please   let my moonward gaze 

be unsullied by commercial and nationalistic taint


colin's grandfather tells me that my wishes 

are well-intentioned but naive   i might as well wish for the moon

Yours is a great wish, but Colin's grandfather probably is right. In time, the moon will be a place where people stop for snacks on their ways to Mars.
