Haiku – who to drive them with

Same structure as before, three more Haiku poems also reading as a larger one. Inspiration, using a word prompt from a song same as on this post. This one takes a line from Blur’s track “He thought of Cars” (from their album “the great escape”). Check out the live version of the song performed on the Jools Holland show back in 1995, below. The line I used is, who to drive them with.

First to live on Mars
Building a house, buy a car
all belongs to him

First to be alone
when the novelty is gone
left with just himself

explore with car rides
who to drive them with
listen to star man

last to live on mars
too far to travel back home
and no internet

Lexicon word of the day: Conspectus.

    This is good! Made me think of Rocket Man by EJ 😀 And it made me feel the loneliness in just a few words 😉
