One GIANT Step!byUncle Pervey©
THERE IS NO DOUBT, the first step made,
Was for the future of Mankind.
That first small step Neil Armstrong took,
Leads to the future we will find!
We took a spaceship to our Moon,
To find out if it could be done.
The spaceship made it there alright,
And Space Travel had just begun!
The power source of our spaceships,
So far has held space travel back.
But Atomic energy may,
Start it on the right track!
When we can control this power,
We will build Mankind's first Starship.
Then we'll explore the Galaxies,
With trip, after trip, after trip!
Mankind will reach out to the stars,
They'll explore, until they can find.
A world that can be colonized,
By the Pioneers of Mankind!
That first step that Neil Armstrong took,
Was a step to forever bind.
All Humanity to the stars,
"A GIANT step for ALL Mankind!!
