I have landed! The first boy on Mars,
This planet is not as good as ours.
Mars is made out of red jelly,
Very yummy in my belly.
I met a green and blue dat,
A mixture of a dog and a cat.
He could talk and he did say,
'This sounds crazy but come this way,
Close by is a colossal town,
And it is called the King's Crown.
We pick our food straight off the trees,
Crisps and chocolate, burgers and peas.'
I lived with Dat for 51 years
And then I came back for the good of my ears.
To once again hear humans talk,
With gravity again I could finally walk.
When I came back the cars could fly!
They went underwater and floated by!
Everything had changed, the foods were new
I didn't like it, so all I could do,
Was leg it back to Mars!
You'll always be a stranger in a world that
Never quite understands you!
