Galactic enterprise


Notice of absence from MendedFences27
Will be away for a while, until September 2017 more than likely. See you then.

Galactic enterprise

 

Take me home!

 

Somewhere in space

there is a new place

 discovered out of these necessities-

 

No soil for the seeds.

 No room for the unborn.

No water for the seas. -

 

It's a quieter place with longer days

 and endless years.

Perhaps it won’t be green

but brown or gray

or blue or red.

The artists will have a ball

but, will the water taste okay?

There will be water won’t there?

 

Not to worry.

The machines will see to that.

 

Ah, they say it’s a golden paradise.

Summer every day

but, your eyes will need a device

and you may not be as tall

but that’s okay

 for there are-

 

Mountains

and plenty of soil to plow.

 

Take me there!

 

Though it makes you wonder…

 

Who lives there now?
