Have you ever...?

By John Aldred

Have you ever thought
To ask an astronaut
To deliver his report
Upon your davenport?

It's a silly sort of thought
Astronauts are very rarely caught
They really like to thwart
Questions on a davenport.

They are spoilers of the wordy sport
Masters of the quick retort
How could they be of any other sort
Having flown at the speed of thought.
