L Anno

Three weeks after my birth

Gagarin was lifted into space

Fifty years ago today

According to the radio

 

If only I could fly away

Seek that ultimate escape

Away from worldly troubles

And the people who I hate

 

But I’m trapped here by inertia

And gravity’s grave curse

Besides, it’s only temporary

We all return to Earth.
