A sliver of a silver moon

Shone through my window

In December, not June

The Chinese, they say

Landed on the surface

And hauled some rocks away

A spokesperson, forsooth

Said it was all for science

And discovery of the truth

Rumor has it there is a race

On the moon they will land

And establish a base

They say they also want to discover

Whether or not

The moon holds water

One thing’s for certain

As certain as can be

On the moon there is no vast expanse of sea

Now the Chinese want to go down in history

As the people who learned the truth

And eliminated the moon’s mystery

Nonetheless the awe-struck poet

Will look at the moon, be inspired

And that’s the romantic truth of it
