There once lived an ugly Martian
With mighty crispy features
It was named Sandy
By its proud makers.
It loved to gorge on Venusian sand
That’s why its name
Tearing through its Sulphurous atmosphere
Earned it some fame.
While passing nearby earth
It decided to stop
It alighted in my garden
Eating all the green crops.
I cried out loud
All neighbors backed out in fear.
It seemed to look at me; I was cheered.
Some yellow drippings on the ground
Smelt like sulphur
It gave a loud belch
With a stinky odor.
The medium sized creature
Perhaps made of tungsten
Underwent a sudden seizure
Perhaps it was greensmitten.
We wanted it to take it to the local hospital
But sadly we couldn’t
For Mars’s average temperature is nearly 200 degrees Celsius.
It was awesomely hot
Creamed to its three blots
One of which looked like a food spot.
Scientists came rushing
To find it gushing……………………………………..water!
They proposed the following equation:
Veggie greens [carbohydrates] +sulphur + tungsten=water???????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Politicians took the matter into their own hands
Spread the voice loud and clear
“The water crisis is over!!!!!!!!!”
Votes cast by people were innumerable
All set into frenzy motion
To take poor Sandy to the lab
To get water
Soon Sandy became the talk of this world
The hit of our educational hubs.
Everyone wanted to meet the great “Aqua donor”.
Thronged its lab with greens of all kinds
Sad for Sandy, who wanted a Sulphur Cake
Got instead a bitter gourd shake.
People thought their problems were over,
India sent to Mars a Space Rover
To know more;
But no surprise, nothing was found, except sand
That unfortunate Sandy did actually want.
It soon suffered from siliconosulphurotungstenaphenesis
Alas! It could not be saved.
The one liter water has been preserved by the lab fellows to understand about Martian life.
The whole world again plunged into deep sorrow.
Water crisis is here to stay,
Along with the sulphur mark in my garden that Sandy made.
