It was hard to leave, hard to understand
Some tried hard to save our Earth
The others ignored the facts out of hand.
Where once was green and plenty all was now dust and dearth.
I was not alone there were others of us there
Set upon this lonely moon
Destined , now to travel who knows where.
Afraid and frightened I sat marooned
