Infinity Pool on Ganymede

February 2021: Jeff Bezos to step down as Amazon chief executive to spend more time on space exploration and climate emergency.

Take all your hate and all your fear with you
And blast them into the blue

Building your walls to keep them out
Building your stash to wipe them out
You staked your claim on planets new
You built your ship and up you flew
Looking back on the world below
Safe from the damage and woe
But you cannot play golf in space

Take all your hate and all your fear
Take all your hate and all your fear
Take all your hate and all your fear with you
And blast them into the blue

Platinum club for psychopaths
Draining the tank with dirty maths
Plundering all to gild the few
You built your ships and up you flew
Infinity pool on Ganymede
You took so much more than you need
But you cannot play golf in space

Take all your hatе and all your fear
Take all your hate and all your fеar
Take all your hate and all your fear with you
And blast them into the blue

Space Golf by Hen Ogledd

I’m in love with the track for a number of reasons – it sounds as if Steeleye Span had been born on a Generation Ship.

It could have only been written in these times.

The punch of some of those couplets. Oof.

Perhaps it will survive the new dark ages and be sung acapella – a ‘Gaudete‘ for the 24th Century – by our descendents in Jupiter space.

I wish Mr Bezos well, and hope that perhaps he gives the track a listen.

Platinum club for psychopaths
Draining the tank with dirty maths
Plundering all to gild the few
You built your ships and up you flew
Infinity pool on Ganymede
You took so much more than you need
But you cannot play golf in space
