for a few

cut funding for nasa
so that we may explore the stars
in spaceships with advertisements
do not explore
for the glory or the advancement
of all people
instead make a profit
for a few
plant the flag of a corporation
on some foreign world
replace our ladder to the stars
with the corporate ladder
reach up and pull yourself there
with a fist full of cash
and plenty of selfish ambition
exploration for the sake of learning
is for imbeciles
there is money to be made!
tourists to transport
asteroids to be mined
astral dumping grounds
for nuclear waste
do not waste the people’s taxes
on something so trivial
as the vast expanse of the universe
we have wars to fund after all
