 once upon a time

Science fiction or scientific fact
depends on your limited intellect.
It exists albeit in a limited way.
if you want to get off planet only way.
Nowadays science fiction can’t exist,
not in the real time of our world today.
In Bradbury’s and Asimov all was futureistic .

 now fantasy is passed of as science fiction.
spaceship nonsense in this time -let go
We need the inspiration to bend space.
Computers dominate, but intellect is moribund.
The minds that went before showed the way.
But we are too earth bound to accept we can
step across and bend the space around us.
Nasa accepts the concept yet stumbles around.
Perhaps they are aware we destroyed one world.
Why stretch and bend the distinct fact that greed will
collude with science to rape and pillage the future of
man to aspire to greatness, "destruction" it's all we seem to know
