Rob Schackne #312 - A Good Question

A Good Question

                   "If a trip to Mars you earn, remember friend, there's no return."  
                            (Burma-Shave jingle)

A good question
you really want
a different life

a pound of leaves
a pound of bunnies

forget the showers
if a trip to Mars
is what you want
there's no return
the lie starts at dawn
the sun is falling

half a field away
everything arranged
tested near to death

forget the answers
there's no return
we leave in a hurry

and strewn behind
the smoking trees
the bodies I don’t know
what it was to know

                    ANZAC Day 2017
