Silence Costs

Silence Costs

A Poem by bigfootprint

X jet with no sonic boom


NASA will construct it soon,

X jet with no sonic boom.

Don't want to scare the UFOs.

Keep us quick and on our toes.

Spend a ton in startup cost.

Save cents to cut the loss.

Lazerize the pointed nose

To ionize the air up close.

That way we go the distance,

Cutting all the air resistance.

Never fear a lack of nerds.

Take a cue from nerdy birds.

They flutter and chirp all day,

Always know just what to say --

No boom when they fly away.

Their tails defy our dash of salt.

Hope the X jet cheaper caught.
