A poem from a reddit prompt

There Is No Planet B, By Ray Daley.
(from a reddit prompt)

We sent a bunch of missions, just about fifty-three,
Fired ’em off all off into space, bound for Planet B.
Built those rockets; built ’em good, Named from A to Zee,
Shot them into darkest space, Aimed at Planet B.
We’ve been sending missions there since 1963,
Hoping we find a sign of life on good old Planet B.
We looked out with our telescopes, and guess what did we see?
We killed all our astronauts, there IS no Planet B.
