the last astronaut

Someday we'll live under the ground
with glass roofs letting in the light
at night there won't be any sound
and we can stare out into space

Leaving the world behind
with all its prison thoughts
only the truly brave
can be the astronauts

When all the gadgetry is gone
with all the tricks we have learned
crippled with domesticity no more
then no more lies we'll use

The Last Astronaut, Pram, 1998
