Emily “The Astronaut” Dickinson

Emily’s in the Shuttle maneuvering
the arm to release a spy satellite
for the military-industrial complex

which rules the country
contrary to popular belief.
Apparently nobody listened to that

old bald-headed bastard Eisenhower,
and still today no one
wants to hear the truth,

face the facts, come to grips with it.
So you say, “Hey, Emily’s just doing her job!”
The perpetration of this indignation

doesn’t bother you because you’ve been brainwashed---
but look at the bright side of it,
your brain is nice and clean

when Emily puts the Shuttle arm away.
Her butt and breasts are just as sexy weightless
as when they’re being dragged down by gravity.

DDE may have complained about the M-I complex, but as I recently read somewhere, there was much irony in his complaint, given that he had just overseen the introduction and rapid development of what he was complaining about!

Yes,and he was,after all,just a General.
