Colonize Mars

It doesn't matter that we will
contaminate the place
with our DNA-based life
if anything lives there
if anything ever lived there
that might be based
on some other biochemistry
it's nothing but single cells
not as important
as our escape from Earth

If we find native organic material there
that's lagniappe
the rovers have already done the dirty deed
we find life underground
it'll be something we brought ourselves
