Astronaut Must Be Upset

Astronaut
Must be upset.
Not because
The word
“Naut”
Is lodged
Inside
Its body
And
Sounds like
“Not”
And
Not because
“Knot”
Could be square
Or uptight
And
Not because
“As”
Could sound like
“Ass”
Short for
“Jackass”
And not
For anything but
“Astro”
Is short for
Astronaut.

Or maybe
It’s proud
To be
Astronaut,
Not
“Naut”
And not
“Astro”
Another word
For
Cheater.
