David Bowie Song

Imagine waking up and

everyone is gone,

turning on the TV you see

a message from the Pentagon.

It says you are

the last man standing

and you better take cover

for aliens are after landing.

Would you think you are

a part of a David Bowie song

and the Spiders from Mars

are in control of Hong Kong.

Could you be the hero

who will save the world

or would you think this isn’t real

it’s far too absurd.

But then your phone rings

and it’s Major Tom

telling you in thirty minutes

he going to detonate a bomb.

 Nowhere to run

and time running out,

you put on a CD to hear it

direct from his mouth.

He sings of extinction

and life on mars,

you pull back the curtains

to look towards the stars.

But instead you see people

walking down the street

and your reflection in the glass

is as white as a sheet.
