the Earth was knackered
collapsing into an unmade bed
while the frightened humans dared not make a sound
you can still hear the snoring
when oceans dry their tears
the Doctor looked in once or twice
listening with a stethoscope
all he could hear were the whimpers
it was pitiful
Sssshhhhhhhhhh! you will wake the Earth up
"My heart yearns for my dearest maid,
A gift for only the finest."
She diverts her gaze in another way;
"I couldn't love it the slightest."
The necklace of gold slips to the floor,
he will never face defeat.
"My darling for you, my heart has torn,
Yet I find myself still at your feet...
"I sit on a throne of gold my dear,
Your golden gift doesn't compare
to the women I see standing in the mirror
for she is strong and fair."
