goodnight,
little explorer

sleep well,
in your cradle
of dust
and
dirt

//mission complete

you
are not lost
here

you
are home-

night
does not become
you

//my battery is low and

the
storm
has passed
now

brush off
your
body

//i’ll be looking at the moon

You
are not buried
yet

look up

you
should die
in the
Sun

//but i’ll be seeing you

intrepid adventurer,
how bold
and
fair

look up,
great queen-
your
kingdom
awaits

//it’s getting dark

see
there

on the horizon,
there
arises

the
light

//goodnight, Opportunity.
goodnight,
goodnight,
goodnight
Sweet Dreams, Oppy, you wonderful rover you. Mission Complete.
