We want to leave our gardens?
An entire worldwide flooding
The only survivors of life that used to be
Eight humans and some animals
In a box-like ship designed by God
His rainbow promised a 2nd chance
Upon a now-cleansed and teeming
Living and organically one with man
Designed just so to fit our needs
To give us seed and verdant soil
Profuse kinds of fruit and leafy greens
Copious flowing waters
In rivers and lakes and creeks and oceans
O to see powerful waters
Spilling majestically over mountain cliffs!
Skies awash in brilliant hues of blue
Above fluffy clouds in shades of white and grey
A perfect sun that glorifies it all
By its eternal light and warmth!
God granted a 2nd chance to all mankind
His 3rd will only be for his Faithful
Leave it….ungrateful ones suggest?
ESCAPE it…. genius problem-solvers say?
We should gaze longingly instead
At the dead and reddish dust
Of the planet we call Mars?
Fly, on rockets, off our lovely garden?
Our rhapsodic garden we call Earth?
Shall we, again, disdain our gifted garden?
We’re not, again I ask, that stupid!
