Cruising the Supernova

The sailor cast off the mortal coil
As the voyage of a lifetime was hatched
And the astral yacht blew off the Beaufort scale
At a speed no lifeboat could match

With star boards current in every direction
And solar winds blowing sternly on the face
The sailor waved and bowed to mother earth
Before joining the round the universe race
