This poem came into my head because I was thinking of Mars as the planet of war.

Hold your horses, Mars

They're running so fast, they'll take off in flight.

They have been through many wars

In the day and in the night.

 

Put your sword back into its sheath,

Your energy is really ferocious.

You trample on people below and beneath,

And yet they are brave and courageous.


You cause unnecessary hurt,

Pressing people's faces in the dirt.

It's true that you don't really care,

If they weep and shed a tear.

 

Mars, steady on,

This is really no fun.

Shining steel, and blood spilling,

All this unnecessary killing.

The End.
