A Spaceship worth the Name


No visible means of propulsion

No apparent need of fuel

Yet tearing through space

Lickety split

At thousands of miles per hour.


No need for aerodynamics

No air to impede its path

A simple design of shape and contour

That allows efficient mobility and comfort.


Automatic facilities provided

For passengers of all shapes and sizes

Little, if any, upkeep required.

Merely efficient stewardship and care.


What is this marvel of technology,

So nearly perfect in substance and worth?

This vehicle of space travel engineering is

None other than our spaceship earth.
