" the moon Alice."

I recall the old TV series, "The Honeymooners", with its characters Alice and Ralph Cramden.  Ralph would often threaten with balled up fist to send Alice to the moon.  Everyone knew that Alice really wore the pants in their relationship and that Ralph, despite all his bombastic rhetoric, was really a softie.  The memory of that great live television show was the catalyst for this short poem.

To the Moon

The tracks were laid
right to the Moon,
so Alice took the train.
She finally reached her limit
of hearing Ralph complain.
