Tragic Contingency: Nixon’s nixed speech, redacted

brave men know
there is no hope for mankind

they mourn their family and friends
mourn their nation
mourn the people of the world

mourn a Mother Earth that dared
send two of her sons into the
unknown

they looked at stars
and saw blood

others will follow
but these men were first
and will remain
the night

widows-to-be end communications
the clergy mend their souls
