Golf on the Moon, Frisbee on Mars
On February sixth Seventy One
American Astronaut to the moon
Alan Shepherd attached a six-iron
to equipment meant for collecting rock
then covered the club at launch with a sock.
As boosters lifted them up into space
his mind was on when he would have a chance.
After extended stay on the surface
he pulled out his club and dropped his two balls.
He shanked the first and hit home the second
a two hundred yard shot a lunar first.
One day I would like to visit the moon
or maybe Mars, to be the first hippy
to toss in red sky a hidden frisbee.
