We know that they are there

Lurking in their secret passageways,

Hooting high frequencies through their lair.

The sound itself chills the blood. It dismays

Any attempt to communicate, to find

Congeniality within this horrid race,

This concealed threat moved by its evil mind.

Counter-reaction must be made apace..


These Martians cleverly concealed canals

Sharply spotted by the Lowell scope.

H.G.Wells  long recognized these nasty animals

Who would descend to ravage Earth of hope.

But our wise leader now can foresee

This interplanetary threat to our nation

Which plans to assail our liberty.

Brave astronauts shall dispense annihilation.


The project must be made at high expense.

Education, health care, pensions will be sacrificed.

Huge benefits will nurture businesses of defense

Whose contributions will be generously priced.

Our delusions now are lost of WMDs

But we are confident of the threat from Mars

Which belittles terrorists in our communities.

We must now gird NASA for the stars.


Our wondrous foes are lost back in the past.

The Commies now gone but Mars retains ability

To endow a threat, perpetual, to last

For decades. What a magnificent utility!
