Laika Dog, aboard Sputnik 2, November 3, 1957 (poem)

Laika
was a space dog
cosmonaut for the people
she lost her life
going around the earth
just because we could
send her there to die

first earthling to see us
from above the clouds
i wonder what she was thinking
going so fast, so far away
from the streets of Moscow?
she was only a stray
a forgotten life form

now she was the only one in space
whimpering. crying.
