The Space Force (#1539)

Trump has directed the creation of “The Space Force,”
Has all common sense and sanity run its course?
Do we really need a sixth military branch?
The whole idea makes me scratch my head and blanch,
We have so many issues to resolve here on earth,
What warrants another branch’s eventual birth?
The only dangers in space are what we’ve put up there,
Shouldn’t we instead focus on immigration and healthcare?
Or reinvest in NASA and our space program we let go?
Let’s focus on education and see the number of jobs grow,
I understand the desire to lead in space as we had been,
But space warfare is needless unless we fear little green men,
I’d rather focus on diplomacy and things on the home front,
Instead of stroking egos and pulling a political stunt,

Any Thoughts?
