Birth Oddity (Mixed Poem with Space Oddity by Sir David Bowie)

Ground Control to Major Mom
Ground Control to Major Mom
Take your medicine
and put your helmet on


Ground Control to Major Mom
Commencing countdown,
engines on
Check your ego
and may our love be with you


[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff


This is Ground Control
to Major Mom
The truth has been downplayed
Other parents want to know how much you even care
Now it's time to leave your old self
if you dare


This is Major Mom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm fighting
in a most peculiar way
And the world looks very different today


For here
Am I sitting in a new life
Far beyond my old world
Mother Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do


Though I'm past
one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my child I love her very much
she knows


Ground Control to Major Mom
Your circuit's dead,
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Mom?
Can you hear me, Major Mom?
Can you hear me, Major Mom?
Can you....


Here am I floating
round my new life
Far beyond the Moon
Mother Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do.
