Alien - Poem by Paula Glynn

Mars we call the Red Planet,
Has always fascinated the world,
And many stories have been written,
Mars maybe the Martians planet,
Where another Earth could exist,
And now NASA could build,
Another Earth on Mars,
Making an Eco system,
Bringing water and plants from Earth,
And building buildings,
Where people can stay for a short time,
Traveling on a buggy to explore the Red Planet,
NASA sending people there,
As a tourist on an airplane,

And there will be space police,
For pirates wander space,
Sending illegal goods,
Such as weapons and drugs,
Into the now space age,
The digital age is still here,
For iPads and smart phones,
Have revolutionized the world,
Computers making how things run,
So much easier and convenient,

The space station now populated,
With the public,
Civilians going into space,
As easily as boarding a plane,
And there are tours to the solar system,
People loving Jupiter's rings,
The moon is party central,
For it was the first step for mankind,
People remembering the first man,
On the moon, man now god of the stars,
Searching for alien life,

NASA searching for Earth-like planets,
In other solar systems,
And if we do find life,
We will have to find a way to get there,
The Photon light enhancer,
An engine powered by light,
Meaning man can travel fast,
Through the space and time continuum,
Star Trek on the right track,
That old show becoming reality,
Touch screens once science fiction,
Now science fact,
For man created technology,
To make the world a better place,
And the world is a better place,
Harmony and no third world debt,
Or the destruction of the rainforests,
And extinction of animals,
For while we're searching for aliens,
It is this planet we need to cherish and love.
