I see you staring into space
what is it you are thinking?
Just wondering what it’s like
when humankind discovers
other forms of life on Mars
You sound quite sure that
one day, we will – then what?
I am trying to imagine what
nourishment might keep them
alive, makes them thrive that
sort of thing – will they want
to mate with earthling types
and vice versa –could be quite
important in the wider scheme
of future things to come our way.
You and your ideas on copulation.
The Dons get very excited about it
don’t you know – it makes their faces
come alive when discussing it – they
glow with pride to be a part of it.
I wonder if they brush their teeth!
Who the Dons you mean? Of course.
No you nerd – the little Green men
and girls – who swirl about in mist and
fog – and do they pet their dogs and cats.
Perhaps one day sooner you think we’ll
know – and hopefully before our Earthly
Mother sets aglow those forest flames.
Yes - such a shame those smoking fires.
