Who’d Have Thought?

Who'd Have Thought?

I was thinking about the Man in the Moon the other day, and how lonely it would be if there really was a man in the moon. Who would his friends be? Who would he love? This poem unites the man in the moon with a lover, with whom he basically goes around causing a ruckus. The consequences for the Earth of losing it’s moon don’t bear thinking about.

Who’d Have Thought?

Who’d have suspected
The Man in the Moon
With his lunatic laugh
Would have left us so soon?

And who would have thought
That the Woman on Mars
Could have called him away
To the peace of the stars?

The Man in the Moon
And the Woman on Mars
They travelled together
And hung out in bars

The Woman on Mars
And the Man in the Moon
Had the faces you’d see
On the back of a spoon

Mate, put out that light! People are sleeping!

Mate, put out that light! People are sleeping!
