Mars, The True Land

Mars, The True Land, is the poem that started this little jaunt ino the unknown, both figuratively and literally … literally

 I think I would fare well on Mars
where the ceaseless red
soothes tired eyes
while slowly eating at the souls
We are both alien
this alien planet and alien I
superior yet inferior
enlightened yet damned

We are both alien
this alien planet and alien I
and that is why we both exist
and how we both survive

Superior yet inferior
both hidden secrets and desires
enlightened yet damned
and that is why she loves him

We are both alien
this alien planet and alien I
and that says much about our lives
our dreams and our hopes

You believe in no God
so who shall save you
perhaps a knight
in armour white as purest snow

The snows of the crystal crown
on the summit of Olympus Mons
he may yet offer you his hand
to share his lofty throne

To join with you in strength
To join with you in honour
To join with you in love
To embrace you unto death

In the deep cold reaches of space
or upon these crimson plains
you shall never be alone
for he shall be by your side

For I think I would fare well on Mars
where the ceaseless red
soothes tired eyes
while eating slowly at the mind
We are both alien
this alien planet and alien I
superior yet inferior
enlightened yet damned
