As I looked out one cool, October night.
My eyes beheld a wondrous sight.
Mars had come to dance round the moon.
A sight to make all lovers swoon.
His winged feet had flown him so near.
His rugged redness against her sheer.
As was foretold by the ancient seer,
to join again in the 25,000th year.
Humanity became so enthralled,
children laughed and old men bawled.
Wars stopped and everyone danced in the street.
Never had the world seen such a treat.
People begged NASA to send a rocket.
Everyone wanted a piece of Mars in their pocket.
Alas, our euphoria was very short-lived.
For the gift slipped away like sand that is sieved
The Earth turned on its axis to meet the might.
Of the warrior Mars and its gravity that night.
The oceans were tossed from their basins,
volcanoes erupted and earthquakes hastened.
The Armageddon wished for had come to pass.
And all souls went to heaven for the repast.
The Earth and Mars continued round the Sun,
A billion years later humanity returned to its fun.
Only to be swallowed by the source of its run.

|Mars grows everyday...closer. Perhaps this is part of life's change that is fated doom. Very clear words here Ron. You're a smart peron and you know what you speak.

|Like the event and possibilities of which they sing, these lines comprise a small wonder made brilliant by the lights of vision, hope, and destiny that shine throughout.

|Hard to improve on what was already said...I enjoy hearing of predictions and such & I hope if we are going to wash away due to axis changes of the earth, then do it at night when I am unaware or high...;) Ed|
