A Poem in TCBH!: Mars, oh Mars


By dlindorff - Posted on 21 March 2012

 

Mars, oh Mars

  how pink you are!

You hang in the east –

  a blushing star,


Above

  the abandoned quarry,

where I have come

  to say, I’m sorry 


For confusing you

  with the god of war

when Earth 

  has always been his whore.


Nowhere else

  does he stake his claim;

pity you

  must bear his name!


As you draw near

  (How you have missed her!)

see what’s become 

  of your fair sister. . .
