Favorite Quote:
"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead." -Charles Bukowski


Men clad in strange suits dissect Luna’s flesh.
They abscond with her pale skin, their trophy.
Where handcuffs should lie, glossed cuff links
are fresh,
And these men are lauded for their “bold” feat.
Luna’s bumpy skin, impaled by our flag.
Our emblem of freedom conquers another.
Weak, she crumbles to our touch, while men clad
In their odd suits stomp, strangle, and smother.
Yet, she prevails. An intergalactic pirate,
She rules the seas with no trepidation.
We push our luck, oblivious to climate
And gravity of the situation.
Mankind has leapt too far. Now, we’re squatters.
Judgment day’ll come, the charge:
moonslaughter.


The author's comments:

I am deeply infatuated with space and hope to one day venture beyond Earth's realms and discover the unknown. By the same token, I am also worried that mankind will overstep its boundaries as we continue to search for breakthroughs in space. My mixed feelings are what led me to create this piece.
