My Cat Questions Our Space Program ~ a short poem by Katrina Curtiss 5/13/2020

My cat was making a funny face
About our next flight into outer space
You spend billions of dollars in flying around
When it should be spent here on the ground

It’s funded by taxes paid by the little guy
Who needs food on the table, not pie in the sky
22.6 Billion will be spent this year, by you and me
That’s billions with a really big capital B

It’s been 10 years since a crew’s gone back in space
As America continues to win the space race
It’s an experiment, not a vacation
Spending 110 days at the International Space Station

I don’t know why you humans care so much about Mars
They don’t have running water, Cheetos or electric guitars
The Rover up there, isn’t a dog with a bone
Even dogs are smart enough to stay here at home

Think of how much 22.6 Billion dollars would buy
Of how many tears, that money would dry
As people are struggling to make ends meet
Businesses’ are shutting their doors in defeat

You should spend those Billions on the simple guy
Instead of shooting 2 astronauts into the sky
To me, just a simple cat, that money you spend on space
Should be spend here on earth, making it a better place
