Universe 13


At nearly seven miles long

And half a mile wide,

The freighter cleared

The loading dock,

Her escort at her side.

Departing from the Ceres Mine,

She eased into the stars

With another load of iron

For a steel mill on Mars.

Now as she left The Belt,

A rift in space began to form–

“Great Ganymede!”

The captain cried,

“We’re heading for a storm!”

The freighter soon was torn apart,

And ne’er again was seen,

And that’s the way

that things went down

In Universe 13.
