sometime.

I found myself at home one day,
which was a bit of a surprise
as I should have been
onboard Apollo 11 at the time;
I had to give myself
a good talking to
which seemed to do the trick.
I never could understand how
they expected me
to get my wheelchair down those ladders
anyway,
but I had the lines all rehearsed;
 -  “this is a small step for a man,
but a long drop for a cripple”.
Buzz & Neil came by yesterday,
had a couple of beers
& talked about old times;
you know, those guys must
be in their seventies now,
but they don’t look a day over
eighteen.
Must be all that keep-fit, I reckon,
just in case they ask us again
sometime.
