Shape Shifting

Ray guns fired in comic books,
flying saucers suspended over
streets; a simple Sputnik then Telstar.
Our future was guaranteed.

Moon base missions not achieved;
lunar landings no longer made.
Shifting shapes now probe through
infinite space, aiming for alien life.

Humans projecting to distant stars
remain in the realms of a colourful page.
