A Chapter by Dave Brown

welcome mat


Mary-lee and Randolph were family

Just two of six children born

But because they were only three feet tall

They had always been treated with scorn


People thought each was a spongebob

Cuz they had to wear square pants

And often while helping out in the garden

They were mistaken for odd looking plants


With life on Earth being such a misery

They decided to moved up to Mars

And to attract other short settlers

Elton Musk handed out short cigars


On Mars, the days are much shorter

The nights are way shorter too

And if your growth has been badly stunted

Short Martian's have a long welcome for you

Your mind is a maze of never ending surprises. All I can say is I am partial to happy endings and you have done Mary-lee and Randolph proud here. Always been a spongebob fan as well as his mates.

certainly nothing like a happy ending which I speculate you are also hoping for

Yes the idea of heaven is cool. Hell is far too hot for my English skin. I don't do heat well :)
WOW! This is where I want to be, then! Not that I'm short, but my pants have tended toward being pretty square these days. And nothing says "old fart" like being square. The Elton Musk line is just short of genius. I'm amazed at all the random s**t that rambles your neurons & how you manage to sift it into nifty poems with snappy rhyme & rhythm! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks Margie
If you like cigars, this could be the place for U
I'm not so sure about those welcoming Martians, Dave. Ever since I read "The War of the Worlds" I've never trusted the suckers.

Caution seems contagious
I've heard that so far, not a single cigar has been handed out
Mars has both shorter days and nights. But will Elon Musk make life there less of a misery than on Earth?

Sign me up! I would totally go live on Mars. But I have children so maybe not
But if I didnt I would
