Thursday Thoughts - On Moving to Mars

Red Light, Red Planet

I will not pay five dollars for
a roll in your next show,
To leave my planet evermore -
You should beg me to go.
 
might help my health a bit,
For tat we know no tit.
Crater hopping sure does sound fun,
but dodging asteroids?
That space suit best be made to run
and locate nearby voids,
like the ones where your cameras
will be properly placed
to record gruesome last hurrahs
without being erased.
 
I'll save my dreams for the next flight,
planet, or galaxy -
The profit sharing seems not right,
I would rather stay free.

Thousands have applied to die on Mars.
Do you think it's because they want spaceships, not cars?

  1. Mars, it's a nice place to live. But I wouldn't want to live there.

    1. LOL. I'd say it's a nice place to fly to but not to roam around or stay. :)

  5. Leave Mars to the Martians. I'd rather live long and rich on home soil. What a crazy idea. Excellent!

  6. Lots of Rhyming and excellent timing.
    Even a rap or three. Thanks for the
    fun read. Maybe we could vote on who
    we send? Does voting actually count?

    1. Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the poem. Unfortunately there is no way to vote for who goes to Mars... Yet... That I know of. :-)

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
