As they take off into space.

I’ll live more simple
as they take off into space
I’ll hunker down here
sparingly taking the food
for my family
paying the mortgage
of a small home
as they ride the rocket ship
I’ll drive a simple car
to and from work
home I’ll come back to
as they walk off a rocket
tears in their eyes
as if they’ve seen it all
and I think
if they have
they’d realize
the money spent
should never have been theirs
because Earth needs a makeover
a savior
that won’t destroy the ozone layer
for a short trip
to simply say
“I have been”
just because you can
doesn’t mean you should.

Thanks for reading.
