I Don’t Suppose

Mars

 

I don’t suppose it’s popular to say

That soon this planet won’t

Have any place to stay where we

Can avoid the heat or not drown

Or have a glass of water to drink.

I would think everyone in town

Might become a bit upset, chew a lip

Or fret their kids could not get

A place to live outside of Mars

Where there’s hardly any air and the trip

Is quite expensive, accommodations

Not extensive, dust storms all the time,

And certainly, no place to swim.

No doubt, there’s no traffic problem yet

But jobs may be difficult to get and the scenery

Seems totally devoid of any greenery.

The price of vegetables or a glass of wine

May be something of a problem.

I would, of course enjoy the lack of bedbugs

And such nuisances but considering their ingenuity

And flair for travel, no doubt,

They would soon be there.

Considering the lack of familiar community

They might be a comfort in familiarity

Or, perhaps, soon,

I should consider the Moon.
