A Vacation to the Moon

A Vacation to the Moon

 

By Elton Camp

 

Those who, about such, seem to know

Say one day to the moon tourists may go.

Such excursions may commence

When enough will pay the expense.

 

Some love to try

To fly that high,

But I’d prefer on earth to travel around

Not at a great distance from the ground.

 

According to what I’ve been told,

The moon is gray, dusty and cold.

I can’t even walk around up there.

Why, that place has not got any air.

 

The thing I might like best

Making up for all the rest

One-sixth my weight on earth I’d be

That scale reading I would love to see.
