All the Astronauts by Denny E Marshall Poem

These cute little poems are fun for when I'm tired at night and want to chime in but can't even bear all the words of a story.

With the brevity, the reader has to accept that there are only hints and wisps. So "stuck in the past" is the theme for me that feels central.

Star Trek's Slingshots to the past are what come to mind, even though they don't fit quite right. But that's what you get when you give wisps to this tired reader!

I think it's more of a condemnation focused on our lack of fortitude and drive to get off this rock and instead keep going around in circles.

Shit man, even with the technology we had in the late 60's we could have been to MARS, shielding and all in place. Instead, here we are going around in circles.
