020718d


in the year 9595
aliens picked up a strange object 
orbiting the fourth planet
it was a member of the dominant species
(by then long extinct)
of the third planet
mummified in a most peculiar way
and in an open vehicle
that had inexplicably
traversed the vast gulf
between the two planets
despite lacking
an adequate propulsive mechanism

Nice one! Now I am worried 'cause it veered off course and may get smushed by an asteroid in the Belt.
