You’ve been up there long, oh great Tiangong,
Thy mighty metal chunk.
But your day is done, you’ve had your fun
Now see we only junk.
With telling force, you ran the course
Now all your fuel’s been guzzled
But where you want, to end your jaunt
Is leaving us quite puzzled.
You’ll burn up slow, and make a show
And leave us all in awe
But if your girth, should hit the earth
Well, that’s just Newton’s law.
If you come round, to smash the ground
I guess I shouldn’t grouse
Unless your flight, with all its might
Would put you at my house!
