(With apologies to Morrissey and Marr...)

Park Oppy at the side of Duck Bay,
You should know time's tide will smother it
And dust will too
When you laugh about rovers who feel so very lonely
Their only desire is to die
Well, I'm afraid it doesn't make me smile
I wish I could laugh

But that joke isn't funny anymore
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone
More than you'll ever know ...
[...]

I've seen this happen in other people's missions
And now... it's happening in ours?

Nice poem, IM!

<sigh>...well, all things must end someday...but for some reason I don't think it's Oppy's time, not quite yet. Don't have a rational reason for that opinion, really, but just got a feeling.
