From red planet to blue
A long journey for this Martian to see
The indigenous population
Is very much a united nation
Each individual is independent
Yet their leader they represent
Always they are in contact
For their leader only they act
The screen–big, little, giant
Staring constantly; none are defiant
Their leader’s image on the screen
Words and images constantly seen
The denzions of the Earth
Obey the great god Google!
Today’s assignment for d’Verse Poetry was to write a Martian poem. Here’s my feeble attempt.
