Life Lived On Mars - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Would a life lived on Mars,
Have entitlements.
And demands for benefits.
Would there be conflicts,
Of religious beliefs?
Would there be...
Peace?

Would a life lived on Mars,
Provide all my freedoms to exist.
With a wish...
To just knock rocks.
Or not...
Without a stop!

And if I should choose to build monuments,
To convince myself...
That I am great.
Would my neighbors become irate,
Because my face...
Beams in light.
Day and night to celebrate.

And if I should choose to refuse to eat,
Lox or spaghetti...
Because I want a taco or two.
Would I be thought of as a prude?
Or...
If I am seen eating collard greens,
Mixed with onions and sweetened peppers...
Would my efforts stereotype me,
As someone who abuses my diet too!
Or...
Will I just amuse those with other choices,
To confuse.

Would a life lived on Mars,
Have entitlements.
And demands for benefits.
Would there be conflicts,
Of religious beliefs?
Would there be...
Peace?
Or...
Will I be so bigoted to insist,
All 'aliens' that exist...
Before I came to prolong my visit,
Be removed.
