Mars: Some Tanka for KIDS TALK RADIO



the red planet
forth from our mother sun
God of war Mars
mans next space adventure
could mean death or loads of fun

Mars a Roman God
so mythology claims
for Greeks maybe too
an axe his fatal weapon
most altercations battled

Martians Alien life
fact not proved still fiction
H G Wells his book
War of the Worlds big green men
published eighteen ninety-eight

Loony Tunes
Marvin the Martian
still alive
on television
oh happy days

Mars a chocolate treat
nougat and caramel
restore energy
a diabetics nightmare
unless their going hypo

Mars has two moons
Phobos and Deimos tiny
fun guys


Working on a conventional poem.
