Chariots to the Moon
He covers the face
of the moon,
and spread it over it
It has been a long day. The coolness
of the night has brought simple
food and good fellowship, shared over
a warm fire. Peter has gotten up,
and wandered away from the others.
His Master comes over to him, and
sits down on the soft grass.
"That's a big moon, out tonight,
"You know what?
I can almost see a FACE on it!"
"One day, Peter, men will travel there."
"WHAT? No WAY!
"How are they gonna' do THAT?"
"Hm.... something like a big chariot,
with a roof on it.
It will go up and up...."
"Uh, UH! That's UNREAL!
When are they gonna' GO?"
"Not for a long time:
A very long time."
"I can't BELIEVE it!
What are they gonna' DO up THERE?"
"Jump up and down, walk around,
talk to people back
on earth, and.....hm, play GOLF."
"Golf? What's THAT, Lord?"
"It's a sort of game, Peter.
It's a game."
"And, that's IT? Won't they
be doing any conquering?"
Yes: of the heavens."
"How very strange, Lord.
Who will these men be:
They'll live in a land very far away.
And they won't have kings, anymore."
"WOW! Where is this place, Lord:
"Uhm, um. Off that way: towards
"WEST? But, Lord, there's
nothin' OUT there. Nothin'!
Nothin' at ALL!"
[SMILE. NOD. STRETCHES.]
"Let's go back to the others, Peter.
On the way, I'll tell you about
the indoor toilet: people will
have them INSIDE their HOUSES."
"No WAY, Lord!
Now I know, You're just
When I look at the heavens,
the work of Thy fingers,
the moon and the stars
which Thou hast established;
what is man that Thou
art mindful of him......?
