I must replace the space tale
because the poet’s blocked release
and it won’t be back until he’s long deceased,

I’ll tell you how it happened
I got permission long ago
to set the words to music for a choir

But then he heard the word
we wanted to record
he said he’d have to hear before he gave the rights

So I was most obliging inviting him along to hear,
But when he’d heard them all he gave one song the big thumbs down!

We sang them in a concert,
the pieces were all well received
I checked to see if he had changed his mind

But much to my dismay,
the poet felt inclined to say
that all four poems were totally out of bounds!

Substitute verses are never as good,
we will all miss the space tale.
