The Lyrics

A married couple has volunteered to be the first passengers on a privately-launched space capsule to Mars. The round-trip would take 501 days, using the gravity of Mars to make a U-turn and return to Earth. I anticipate that the long period in cramped quarters could strain their marital relationship, due to lack of privacy and perhaps intimacy. Compared to them, the couple in TOS had a short trip and plenty of interior space.
I'd like to get you on our slow-float Mars journey,
Five hundred days alone.
Pet you and sweep you in my arms till I score;
Leave all your covers heaping on the star-lit bay floor.

Outside are shining Mars' two moons, bright but tiny,
Pelted by shards of stone.
I'd love to sweat you on our slow-float Mars journey,
Ball through my selfless bone.

Pouting, you're whining, "There's no room for reclining,"
Ending ere start, I groan.
If I don't get you on that slow-float Mars journey,
I'll do myself alone.

For variety and clarity, change "get" to "bed" in line 1 or 15. ;^)

BJM - Good OS, good concept, good execution. Too bad we abandoned our manned space programs. ;D
