A Mars a day

The boffins went to Mars
In a Rover, by the way
And there among the stars
They could work and rest and play.

  1. I always have mixed feelings when I hear stuff like this. Not your poem, the news story 🤣. Because it will no doubt further our learning. But, at the same time, there are many terrestrial problems still to be solved.

    • I feel the same sometimes, but perhaps that is what lifts us as human beings. That ability to see beyond our immediate problems and look to the future. It is a paradox though. For instance, if historically all our energies had been focused on doing what was best for humanity, would we ever have built architectural wonders for future generations to admire?
      I’ve not expressed myself very well this morning, but I think you’ll get my drift!

    • No, there is a chocolate bar in the UK called a Mars bar. it used to be advertised with the jingle, A Mars a day, helps you work, rest and play!
      I should’ve explained!


      • Oh! We have Mars bars here too! And they may even have used that jingle. But I am an ignoramus. Grew up without TV and have an unholy impatience for advertising. Even since having TV, have always had ways to avoid watching ads. What a terrible ad for such a product!!! Sorry. Rant aborted. 🤭
