Another one for Hans Bump's challenge :>)


Martian might

You wonder why I'm red. It's RAGE, you fools!
   Engage your brains (such small things though they be)
and ponder, if I came to you with tools
   to prod and poke, would you spin peacefully?
YE GODS! Since nineteen seventy-one
   I've tolerated landings on my arse,
and all your rampant rovings; aren't you done?
   For how much longer must I bear this farce?
Well, keep this up, perhaps I'll come to you!
   A million Martians summoned to explore
your troughs and pathways, all that green and blue,
   and then you'll know the hardships I endure!
So, you've been warned. Now get out of my sight
or know in full the force of Martian might!
