Heart of the Hadron episode two

Dallying in Space

When last we saw our hero he was zooming through space
Light speed travel took a toll on his face
But interstellar travel has it’s secrets, too
Cosmological cosmetics can take years off you

The journey got unbalanced when the janitor twisted
At light speed he was growing old before he existed
He had to make a move and had to do it right now
So he grabbed the mop bucket and it shifted -pow!

Next thing that he knew the stars were slowing down
Groggy as he felt he feared that he might drown
Outer space is not the place to take things lightly
So when he met an alien he spoke politely

“Hello, I’m from Earth and I’m a ways from home”
The alien replied but in a musical tone
The janitor was sure he recognized the song
And he was pretty sure that copyrights don’t last this long

Besides the alien was talking in slow motion
And juxtaposed with space the thing made quite a commotion
The alien just pointed three hands down the road
And the janitor took off again without his load

Far out up ahead he saw an onrushing mop
Grabbed it as he passed it and it made him stop
He threw it in the bucket and he said ‘ok’
Straddling the Hadron cross the Milky Way

Something made him look behind from where he’d come
There he saw a scientist who rode steel drum
Propelling it through space by playing musical raggae
His dredlocks waved around and he was smoking a ‘J’

The two of them maneuvered nearly side by side
Sizzling at the speed magnetic Hadrons collide
“Come back mon’ said the scientist as he took a puff
That shit is so expensive mon, you’ve got our stuff!’

The janitor looked over at a moon they had passed
And signaled he would land and they could talk at last
‘Ya mon’ said the scientist steel drummed and dredded
Then he turned around and saw where they were headed

The two became as one, their crafts weighed a ton and they realized they had landed on the Planet Fun!

There were dancing children, singing birds, colorful flowers that sprouted words

There were dinosaur vines, Lodge-pole Pines and gold and silver without any mines

They found themselves surrounded by a people quite well rounded, who said the voices in their heads had kept them all well grounded

After much good merriment, they ended the experiment and scientist and janitor climbed back aboard and there they went

Speeding through the vacuum of an interstellar highway

Headed for adventure searching planet, moon and Skyway

Perhaps the two would someday take these teachings back to home…

The Scientist would present this to the Hadron-streaking Gnome
