in response to Visual Verse Prompt March
Sputnik 1 and Sputnik 2,
the first living creature in space,
the first man orbits the earth.
Space race won.
You’ve sent a woman into the space,
but it was Armstrong who reached the moon.
Apollo-Soyuz – a historical handshake.

now, is only laughable
Industry’s robbed and corrupt.
yet government secrets
and the patriot’s heads
are still lifted high.
by the Crew Dragon’s
Space race lost.
