A sudden urge to write, to rhyme
has alas come over me this time,
so go on here for ‘proper’ views
or stay exactly in your pews
to read of Lunarcy! or such,
Which I did enjoy so very much.
Chris Carson is a strange ol’ chap
who’s drawn in detail a lunar map
a plan for Man to go once more!
The moon! The rock! God’s greyblue floor!
Him – and others- like Alan Bean
revolve around this lunartic scene
and although at first we laugh, we sneer
at Dreams which these good men hold dear
I promise there is more to spy
In their hearts than in our eyes,
that must look hard past mocking blinds
to see the jewel of such minds.
But worry not, Ennis is skilled!
Director I mean, who must be thrilled
to know he’s tricked us all into seeing
that under these peculiar beings
are people just like you and me
full of glum and full of glee.
The tale is not so much the moon
not so much the place, the loon.
Like any movie worth its core
Lunarcy! is so much more.
Still reading? That’s sweet, I’m sure you know
That rhyming’s a business that goes by slow
but we’re at an end so I’ll take my bow
I’ll say: go watch this whenever (now?)
It’s a lighthearted, gut-knocking
smooth-sailing, sweet talking
film about dreams
and isn’t that all you need to know?
