Mission to Mars

All explorers go for loot 
but with nothing there it’s pointless 
no animals for fur to shoot 
or stuff to be exploited

no air to breathe or water 
no profits to be made 
no shade or friendly shelter 
and no natives to enslave

hardly worth the trouble 
considering the cost 
when all around are problems 
that here need fixing first

the Earth we’re busy stripping 
nature so to tame 
humankind will visit there 
and expect to do the same
