Mars, Earth and Sun Align

Mars aligns with the sun and Earth
in a cosmic display
once every 26 moons

Some will put it on the tube
(if there are any left)
The rest might see it on a screen.

Martians enjoy this solar eclipse
when the Earth steps in between,
only to inch away again for a galactic tan.

This Red Planet opposition
is not political.
This is polemical:

Mars is probably not red.
We see it though the blue of oxygen
It may be as green as it can be,
if the scale came from Neptune.
