“Earth’s ‘Minimoon’ is About to Leave Us Forever”


by Kevin Ahern

O whither goest, minimoon?
We hardly got to know ya.
We’re sure you’ve been surveying all
The crap down here below ya.

You’re flying off before we’ve had
The chance to even name ya—
But given what you’ve seen on Earth
No one down here could blame ya.
