R.I.P. Cassini

Oh stalwart vessel! Did siren ring song
snare you like an Odyssean sailor?
They say your conversion did not take long
from probe to vaporized con trailer.

Armchair trailblazers now salute you
and your glance into the vast unknown.
Now you mix with the Saturnian dew,
or perhaps through hexagonal storms are blown.

Like bold chest clutching stage deaths of yore
you bravely gave yourself to the ages
all to make room for some alien spore
Instead of Earth borne microbial rages.

You brought us the music of the spheres...
now forever etched...on midnight sonneteers!
