MastoPrompt: Child

I decided to take a break from pushing messages and came up with a story instead.

A child looks up into the sky
Is quite confused and wonders why
"Why are these dots up in the air?
And can I ever travel there?"
"Impossible!" their parents say
"They're very very far away.
We'll never go to where you see.
We don't have the technology.
The light you see, just so you know
It left there many years ago."
"The moving ones?" the child maintains
"Oh, all of those? They're all from planes."
