lyrics

Going Home

He put his hand
in his pocket and patted
the electronic ignition key
to the capsule
that would carry
him home

He felt that he had
been marooned
on this planet
abandoned
forgotten
for some months now

Each night
he could see the lights
of the mothership
orbiting
way above the surface
of the planet

Disappointed
with his survival rations
he longed for his
store of favourite foods
that called to him
night after night
from the mothership

He was not alone
on the planet
but he did not enjoy
interacting with
the humans
and their obsession
with eating
shepherds pie
and stinking fish

Their culture was
far too primitive
for him
and he counted down
the days
to the end of his
mission
and his return
Home
