Mars you are the colossal conundrum

Your games are played absent of fun

We see your passion through fiery eye

Know not how you choose ally:

Champion on the football field

In battle, perhaps first to yield.


Around your table sits four beasts –

Pestilence serves the drinks;

You ask in pot for us to place

Duty and Honour before disgrace,

Cards are stacked, deck is loaded,

Pale stands still, future foreboding.


Mars – the only omnipresent,

Yet, nobody prays for your present

Pride and Honour, distinguish those

Who slay Puppy or bitter foe

Should we beg to you forgiveness

Or red you ride completely indignant?


Black or White, there is no right

Seals broken caused this plight.

Mars, bachelor life is not for you

Even if Venus can’t keep you true.


When will you hear our pleas:

Disband your gang – take heed.

May heavens send you back to Thrace,

Find your peace, wedlock with grace.
