Cosmonaut Suits Mir, 2000.

A Soviet Flyboy Pines for the Wilson Sisters
by Charlie Finch

I'm an old astronaut,
Yuri, if you please,
dreaming in my Dacha
of Jane and Louise

The Moscow Space Center
was heaven for me --
all that's left is my spacesuit
for Jane and Louise

Jane and Louise Wilson, Skarfaundry Star City, 2000
Skarfaundry Star City, 2000.

The place was top secret
on a cold Russian plain,
now a few buzzards cackle
for Louise and Jane

The boosters were powerful,
the throw weight insane,
now the hardware just rusts there
for Louise and Jane

I walked out of my space craft
high above the earth's seas,
now I'm shuffling through corridors
with Jane and Louise

The hammer and sickle,
red flags in the breeze,
now lie at the feet
of Jane and Louise
