Celebrity


They were watching always watching
Although he didn't even know
As he lived his life from day to day
He was the star of his own show.
They watched his every move,
How he lived with his mate,
How well they both adapted
To their isolated state.
They seemed to cope so well
Never seemed to have a care
So long as each of them knew
The other was near somewhere.
They made love so delicately
With lots of tender sighs
Unknowingly watched eagerly
By hordes of alien eyes.
Any offspring was awaited.
A hoped for event.
A rebirth of the species
Was the watcher's intent.
It was prime time viewing.
Every single hour of their play
Being watched and edited
Before selected airing every day.
The programme always started
With the sign on their enclosure door
Homo Sapiens (Cloned Versions) -
Not extinct anymore;
DNA extracted from fossils
Found on the ruins of the Earth
Destroyed by this very species
That didn't appreciate its worth.
They were watching always watching
Although he didn't even know
As he lived his life from day to day
He was the star of his own show
