What a fun read!
Thanks for sharing this Steve!  I got quite a kick out of this. I love making up things like this myself...my wife doesn't enjoy quite as much as I do though! Ha ha!

Re: Nice poem
Thanks Andy_l for your comments. And yes, that was an awesome broadcast on December 24, 1968---I was in my freshman year at NYU Engineering school in the Bronx. I never missed any NASA event, especially since I first started with the Mercury launches earlier in the 60s and even now as I visit many NASA locations. (I am hoping to see an SLS launch soon in person)

Best wishes for the holiday season----more neat articles are coming on EDN and Planet Analog regarding NASA activities and the book I am writing about the Apollo program and the Lunar Module.

Nice poem
Thanks.  This was fun.  But I had to look up what a REFSMMAT is.  I'm pretty sure the reading of this poem was overshadowed by the other Apollo 8 accomplishments and communications that week.

You aren't old enough to have remembered the live broadcast from lunar orbit, are you?  I'm sure you know the one I mean.
