Oh Dear, Let’s Go To Mars!

Tuesday, March 5, 2013


Oh dear, let’s go to Mars!
Let’s accept Tito’s offer
Of this space adventure,
And explore heavenly stars.


Our vitals fit the bill,
For the 2018 Mars trip.
Let us train some more,
And learn all the tricks.

We’ll be blissfully cramped
In each others embrace
While jetting through space
For five-o-one days.

No household chores,
No commuting to work,
Only time aplenty
To love and reflect.

With courage in our hearts,
And stars in our eyes,
Let’s put ourselves on the map
By mapping unknown skies.

                ***

You make it sound so nice,
I am certainly enticed,
But before I make up my mind,
I need to ask my wife.

  2. We had a conversation with our son where we asked if he would like to go live on Mars or some other planet! He said he didn't mind visiting but what is the fun in living there if he could not take his family and friends along :).

    1. That is so thoughtful! In this Mars mission the astronauts will only circle the planet and return.

  8. Tito should adopt a country if he has so much money to throw. I wish I was a Martian rather that a stupid Earthling!
