“NASA chief scientist predicts new rovers

will find life on Mars within two years”




we found life on Mars

what would that prove?

other than this:

Hey, look!

Theres life here!

On Mars!


Erikson and Columbus

on meeting men in the west

would not have discussed origin

of what use such speculation

when confronted by this fact:

We sailed here,

these must have also,

or walked, somehow.


were we to find life of any kind on Mars

or any other unearthly world

would not prove a thing

other than life has been found on Mars

or that other unearthly world

as to how it got there

or why its still there

that is but speculation

grown full flower

from our presumptive gardens
