Slipshod Sonnet #10

What was the story again?
How did they treat you on the flight deck?
Define "squared away."
Is it better now or on Venus?
Will you ever finish planting those slumberland annuals?
Where's reaching for the stars ever gotten you?
Reach for the sky. No, that sky.
Millions in despair: "Is God listening?"
The only song she knows and not even all the words.
Something about "If I ever catch him around this henhouse again."
Are you sure you want to work for a company where they lie when
   people get killed?
Can you prove it didn't happen?
Don't shit where your wife sleeps.
Stop eating all the evidence; we were supposed to share.
