The red planet Mars
is the fourth big rock
from our bright star
now what a huge shock
there is no water *
Mars is dead
and made out of mortar
like lots have said.

Astronomers now declare
found only dry sand
nothing lives there
on that inhospitable land
it's absolutely absurd
looking for mammals
or for a wandering herd
of little green camels.

* Please refer to "Keep Looking Around" published by AWB on October 3, 2015.
Using the latest astronomical data "Absolutely Absurd" challenges the validity of
"Keep Looking Around"
