Columbus Day 2034
Gather ’round now children and I’ll recite for you the tale of Christina Columbus.
In twenty hundred and thirty-four,
Christina Columbus went out to explore!
She had three ships that left from orbital decay,
She flew through sunshine, meteor storms and gamma-ray!
She flew by night; she flew by day,
She flew by the stars to find her way.
A digital sextant also helped her know,
How to find the way to go.
Ninety astronauts aboard each pusher-plate vessel,
some crew toil while others nestle.
Then the rocketeers went to sleep,
And others watched the starry sky deep.
Day after day they looked to land,
They dreamed of trees and rocks and alien sand.
October 12 their dream came true,
You never saw a happier crew!
“Aliens! Aliens!” Christina cried,
Her heart was filled with Joyful pride!
But Barnard’s Star this land was not,
It was Arrakis, and it was hot!
The alien natives were very nice,
They gave the astronauts food and spice.
Columbus sailed out to find alien life,
What she found was a seif.
She learned the one fact that all space mariners must know,
She learned that – the spice must flow!
