Poems About Mars: Mick E. Talbot

Enclosed Rhyme: Mars


Twinkle, twinkle all the stars.
Looked again many years ago,
Found some that only glow,
One was red, they called it Mars.

Named after a Roman God.
Their Gods many, this one of war.
Worshiped, and also some adore.
These days we’d be all agog!

No longer worshipped, but
Still thought to be
A contender for life, we’ll see?
Some folk huff, and some will tut!

Many probes have been sent,
Water found, bacteria too,
But not life like me, or you.
Mars searched with good intent.

Travel to planet Mars!
Book now, but remember this!
You’ll not find it a place of bliss.
Outside no there are no  taxi cars.

Space suits will be the fashion.
You’ll find the atmosphere
Is CO2, don’t feel despair,
All’s okay just keep your hat on!

How long will the journey take?
A non stop flight no changes,
Could be one-way no exchanges,
260 days so take some cake!
