It was a rainy day,
I was on the bed as the radio played.
Got my eyes on the table where an old newspaper laid
Saw one of its headline which left me amazed.
The heading announces the arrival of a spaceship today
With that heading, I got carried away.
Brought my telescope and sat near the windowpane,
Waiting for the spaceship as the day passed away.
The sky got dark, the stars shone brightly
Suddenly amongst them, I saw a beam of light
Thinking it was a spaceship I jumped off my spot
Yelled and called everyone at my place.
After a few moments mom started laughing
Upon asking she murmured,
It was not the space ship but a shooting star that you saw
And the newspaper you read had come a few days ago.
Listening to this I got sad and went to hit a sack,
Laughing at myself for such a silly act.
