A Letter From Mars

April Poetry Month Poem 17

Hello Earthlings,

I write, by chance this cordial letter

In hopes to get to know you better.

I saw you walking on the moon

And yearn for a visit from you



I'm firey red,

You'd think as a rule

That I'm hot, but I'm not

I'm really 'cool'.

Would somebody please

Be so kind hearted,

As to tell me how the story

Got started, That I

Send invasions of

Little green men

In flying machines

To capture your men?

I'm a little embarrassed

So I'd like to extend

A warm invitation

for us to be friends.

I'm smaller than Earth

With similar seasons

Please come and explore

And see the reasons

Why we are neighbors among

The great stars.

I'll make you feel welcome!
