Get Off This Rock

by Denny E. Marshall

The endless motion of stars call
Constant signals sent to us all
Many answers lost in time's clock.
The secrets to get off this rock

Beacons pulsing from deep in space
Invitations to leave this place
Clues disappear amongst the flock
The secrets to get off this rock

As galaxies still drift away
Many are wishing for the day
When science finds keys to unlock
The secrets to get off this rock
