Dry lubrication's only just the start
Of problems causing MSL's delay,
So I am told, and yes, it breaks my heart.
To see another project gone astray.
I've loved to watch the rovers do their jobs,
And hope to see much more as we improve
Their range and revving pow'r by heaps and gobs,
To let the next gen rovers eas'ly move
Across a wider swath of Mars. And then
There's all the budget wrangling that took place;
Each bureaucrat's and politician's pen
Threw on more zeroes, rules. O outer space!
Our future as a people counts on you,
But not enough agree, which makes me blue.
