A Further Clue? Sign Is Stamped "Made In Occupied Bulgaria"


Searching for life as we probe the expanse
Can weary a man (if he gives it a chance)
This thing of creation, so deep, dark and still...
One can't help but ponder what's over the hill

But the chances of other life (much like our own?)
Get slimmer and slimmer as new probes are sown
One scientist reckons when all's said and done
That the gamble is roughly a zillion to one
So how do we deal with this most recent case?
(Just received back from a camera in space)
There on a red slope 'gainst millions of stars
Is a signpost that clearly reads: "Welcome to Mars"
