Nebula

I was watching a star

Tiny, small

And only me looking

 

I told a friend

They came to watch too

Just us two

 

We liked the star

Saw potential

For greater things

 

For ages we watched

As the star grew

Little by little

 

More people came

They clapped

They cheered

 

The star shone

The applause helped

Glowing bright

 

This star

We talked to people

Come and see it

 

Soon the star

Had outgrown us

SO BIG!

 

Hundreds of people

Came along

Cheered and clapped

 

Hooray

Hurrah

Our star is great

 

We now watched

From afar

At our star

 

Shining

Spinning

GLOWING

 

It was inevitable

That star

Would explode

 

So big

So bright

So much attention

 

It became too much

And those people

Watched in horror

 

Some cried

Because the star

Wasn’t the same

 

Years passed

 

Then I watched in horror

 

The star was back

Trying to gain support

Based on that former glow

 

People ran around

Whipping up support

Clapping hands

 

Hooray – Look

And the people

Fell for it

 

They remembered the past

And it had been

G-R-E-A-T

 

So they went

To watch the star

Desperate

 

They wanted to recall

The great past days

The glory

 

But that star

Had moved on

Grown older

 

And I shouted

Into the darkness

All alone

 

Please come

See this new star

It will shine

 

And I know

It will be ages

Before they listen
