Mars Block

by Maureen Glaude

don't anyone put Mars on my computer
bad enough man's exploited the moon

leave the poets some intrigue and romance
let human beings imagine and swoon

not all allure comes at your fingertips
controlled by mechanical mouse

as long as there's life left within me
never mind if there's any on Mars

that planet's not coming in my house
it belongs up on high with the stars

Old fashioned sentiment with a modern flair. Well put Mo!
