Eyes from Mars Stare at Earth

Parched and cracked, the red planet’s soil
Life once flowed in seas, fossils found
The man in the moon may entreat
But sunken eyes on Mars confound

A sphinx’s face gazes back at Earth
Eerie replica of Egypt
Where pyramids are unexplained
A page from sci-fi novels ripped

Cro-Magnon man did not evolve
From Neanderthal DNA
So how did modern man debut
Some speculate an alien race

Did Martians make their way to Earth
When the red planet’s oceans dried
Seeking their self-preservation
A sphinx left behind as a sign

When landing on our blue planet
Finding a climate not too torrid
Did alien knowledge play a role
In creating Egypt’s pyramid

How ancient men could lift such stones
Defies modern science theory
Might refugees from a dead planet
Hold clues to human ancestry

The Viking One photos from space
Created much speculation
The Cydonia region of Mars
Home to a baffling creation

But further exploration suggests
The sphinx is a natural formation
Coincidence, we’re told to believe
Is the proper explanation

Look at Viking One’s photograph
And tell me if you agree
That nature, not aliens, crafted
This awesome similarity

    love this one - hope you'll put it in the book. i can't quite believe the face is the natural formation pic they show us either
