Sky Lab

Poetry really doesn't fit reality here! But this was Humanity's first space station so it does deserve to be immortalized! However Humans will be Humans. The very first space strike happened aboard Skylab, and it was due to NASA not thinking like a Housewife!

There were three missions with three separate sets of Astronauts and they were given a certain amount of time to complete their experiments. The first set had no trouble, except they didn't put anything away. Number one, they were Men. Number two they hadn't

been granted enough time to do that! NASA wasn't thinking like those who do housekeeping and hadn't even considered THAT as being important! The second mission had a bit of trouble finding the supplies, but they managed.

However by the time the third set of Astronauts got up there, it was chaos! They could not do what they were ordered to do in the given amount of time so

by the time the third set of Astronauts got up there, it was chaos! They could not do what they were ordered to do in the given amount of time so soon were falling way behind, and being chastened by Ground Control for doing so! Finally, fed up, they refused to work at all until their demands for common sense were met!

Soon after NASA voted to allow Women into the Space Program! Coincidence? Oh what majesty is this That happens right before my eyes! What miracle indeed is this? Mankind at last has reached the skies!

Shining high above the Earth Floating in the sky so far, Silent above a silent world; Brand new, shiny, Man-made Star!

Like a newborn fledgling bird, But floating there on Eagle's wings. Brand new in its ancientness. So silent that it sings!

Mighty stars on velvet Space Glittering there in diamond hues. Blue oasis floating below; Cloudy whites and Ocean blues. Listening to the sounds of Stars. Searching for the signs of Life. Suspended from the things of Earth,

Mighty stars on velvet Space Glittering there in diamond hues. Blue oasis floating below; Cloudy whites and Ocean blues. Listening to the sounds of Stars. Searching for the signs of Life.

Suspended from the things of Earth, Quarantined from Earthly strife. Man will never have enough And how we pray for the right to be Like the Angels higher up Creatures of Eternity!

Creatures of Eternity! Some may say that this is bad And keeps Man from his humbleness, But nothing makes me praise God more than having eye of this;

That Man may see with his own eyes The tiny form of turning Earth And see the puniness of his In spectrum with the Universe.
