Red Nagasaki Rivers - Poem by John Parsons

Welcome to Mars
Dry and Mountainous
Like the Himalayas-

Only hotter-
Roasting like Nagasaki did
On that August day. It is

Red.
Violent, Communist Red.
A Gulag, an Eternal Gulag.

It has Rivers
Of only plasma and platlets.
Getting to this Planet is free-

Just ask me.
For it is me
It is my own Sorrowful Heart.
