As we so like to claim, then how can we
Allow this kind of thing to happen? Would
The savings made outweigh the loss we'd see?
The Fremont Peak Observatory has
A mission to allow the public's eye
To look out far beyond our planet, as
We should if we are to survive. That sky
Above us e'er should lure us to surpass
Our paltry buildings, cities, monuments
And think about our destiny. The glass
There opens minds. Yet I fear common sense
Says budget cuts will take it. So I dare
All those who love it to cough up a share.
