WHAT WILL HISTORY MAKE OF US?

I wonder what future generations will make of this time in our history?

If a Martian decided to visit Earth, I wonder what he/it/they/she would think of us?

A MARTIAN’S VIEW OF EARTH

Far far away

In time and space

There was a land

For the human race.

They called it Earth

I don’t know why

All you could see

Was sea and sky.

There used to be flowers

And animals too

But the people there

Caught some kind of flu.

A deadly virus

Went everywhere

It was on the ground

And in the air.

That virus killed

Billions of lives

And now Earth’s the planet

Where no one survives.

I visited once

But never again

I didn’t like

The cold and rain.

  1. I like the poem. Just one comment. In H G Wells War of the Worlds, it was a virus that actually saved mankind from the Martians. Best wishes to all and stay safeMichael
