When Chimps Flew the Sky
We used to play a game,
back when there were 9 planets,
and Pluto wasn’t just a dog,
when chimpanzees flew in space,
back when nobody knew
how many galaxies were up there,
but we believed in Martians.
And as kids, we said things like
name ten kinds of clouds,
or name the parts of a blossom,
or name all the oceans,
or is King Kong really dead.
But when it came to naming
things our same height,
we couldn’t find a single thing.
