Star 51

the chest of earth is cracked, dying blue heart exposed...
we have our dirty little eyes on mars
to plant our dirty little flag deep in its skin
put it on our list of colonies
(star number 51)
to shackle it to our dead dreams
paint a veneer of blue over its red virgin heart
pock it drill it scar it pollute it rape it shackle it 
to our greed
enslave it
to build slave cities-slave bombs
concoct wars in masks of peace
tear everything down 
with dirty little mushroom clouds
move on

from afar they must look upon us
concluding there is no peace
never will be in the presence of earthlings
no chance to reach out to these war beings
who suffocate their own children
with black masks
toss their ashes to the dead sea

there will never be any contact with peaceful things
we our despised throughout the universe
a plague of cannibal crows to be avoided
locked away laid low in sulphur cages
