Space Washing Machine
My poor mom was very sad
When, sighing, said to dear dad,
“To Washers’ Heaven Washer’s gone,
Its washing job has not been done.”
Well, as for me, I’m not surprised,
Since long ago I realized
Our washer was, in fact, a drone!
On Earth, with us, it felt alone,
It lived a dull and boring life —
To wash and wash is really rife.
Though still it had a cherished hope —
To have the Space as boundless scope.
But then it blinked…
In flight it isn’t up to work.
