Ares Vallis Log 2623 dust storms


Global dust storms are unheard of
this time of year
and the asparagus beds will suffer
choked for want of water ice,
no hope of replacements with supplies
and messages from home eight months away.
We were supposed to have more work force
on the last transporter but red tape
even reaches this far
to the worlds farthest outpost.
Nothing to do but wait it out underground
through meandering eerily lit passages,
pounding out the second mates
idea of music from some ancient archive.
"I can't get no satisfaction!"
