Mars

On bended elbow it crawled toward me as
I beseeched for mercy. Cowered behind the towering shallows
lest it could read my mind.
Testing willpower to its limits, it played games… The dirty kind.

‘Resistance is futile.’ Its voice did say.

‘Why?’ asked I.

“Because… a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play.’

  1. Fun.
    Still, I love cowering…. lest it read my mind. Makes me think of Andre Norton, don’t know why.

  3. This is EXTREMELY clever. I had no idea what to do with the prompt, thus did nothing. LOL. Your idea was a great one.

  4. LOL such fun the verse you spun. Might want to add an apple to, then it will just be the dentist you’ll have to ward off from all the mars bars that come due.

  5. LOL

    This is my favorite line:
    “Testing willpower to its limits, it played games… The dirty kind.”
