The Martian Film Deserves a Poem

All alone and stranded is he.
Left behind with his misery,
an astronaut who’s presumed dead.
To survive he must use his head.

No one knows he is still alive
on Mars and struggling to survive.
He finds a way to contact Earth,
the far-off planet of his birth.

But how can he be rescued here?
Will his old crew be coming near?
And can he last until the day
they pass by Mars while on their way?

Suspense and space fill up the screen.
The Martian is a “must-be seen.”
It truly is adventure bold –
a tale of guts that’s so well told.

Matt Damon is a worthy lead.
He makes us feel his every need.
All other actors nail their parts.
We see their fears and know their hearts.

Plus, planet Mars looks very real.
And getting home? That’s the BIG deal!
