The Unhappy Astronaut
The astronaut was angry. He was clearly not amused.
He spooned his soup from pot to bowl, but seemed a bit confused.
Though landing near the launch pad, he had fallen in a puddle!
This left his spacesuit shrunken and his maps an awful muddle.
Then, when he told the others who’d been in a different craft,
They thought his “trip” was quite a joke and all of them just laughed.
Monty says: “I had written the substance of this poem with a moon landing, but research confirmed the water on the moon doesn’t form puddles as we know them, so decided I had better bring the setting down to earth.”
