The end of U.S. dominance in space. A limerick

It was the 20th of July 1969 and my wife and I had been in the U.S. for a little over a year. We were sitting in the living room watching the moon landing and saw real live feed from the moon. President Nixon said in for him an unusally excited voice “This is the greatest week in the history of the world since the Creation.”
Well, those were the days:

And here is the limerick:

Forty-two years ago was “a small step for man”
Too bad as a nation we no longer can.
As NASA deserts us
And “science” perverts us
We are in retreat with no sensible plan.
