Burt Ives In Televisions All Over The World

Burt Ives, the legendary folk singer,
recently became the first musician in space.
120,000 miles from Earth,
cramped into a bullet shaped capsule,
Burt tuned into Cape Canaveral for a report.
Televisions all over the world showed the scratchy
picture of Burt Ives looking pale and horrified.
Someone at Houston Control cut in nervously and asked,
"Hey Burt, could you play My Green Teenybopper?"
Millions of people watched him hopefully
as he struggled for his guitar under the emergency oxygen supply.
