Charity Ad

ONLY YOU can save this kid
ONLY YOU and your three quid
- But think how many kids we'd save
- If all that unpaid tax were paid

Methane Burps

A poem about the Curiosity rover detecting a methane burp - a possible indication of life - on Mars:

A methane burp
A gaseous gurgle
A bacterial belch of life suggestion
Surfacing from Mars' digestion

No little green men
No Clangers, no Borg
No rich man, no poor man struggling 'neath that rose sky
No sign of a lawman beating up the wrong guy
