Moon, I hear you are moving away

by Raj Arumugam

Moon, I hear you are moving away
Why moon, are you moving away?
Don’t you like your neighbors
earth so blue and green
and earthlings so adorable?
Did you not come so near
to get to know your neighbors?
why then are you moving, moon?
I hear you’re moving slowly,
so slowly your neighbors don’t notice
how considerate of you
Anyway, I’ll be gone before you
