this place i come from

i come from planet earth
in this solar system of this sun
in this arm of this galaxy
coincidentally named after a
wonderful little candy bar

i come from a nice little planet
covered with lush greenery
a little oasis in
this terribly boring galaxy.

i come from a horribly homey little place
a little out of the way
but awfully comfortable all the same

i come from a nice little place
where man fights man
and no one really cares
which is why we’re not big on universal
or even
inner galatic
tourism.

we’ve never taken well to newbies.

i come from a bland
tasteless
little place
i can’t help but look down on it
and search for something a little more sophisticated
i don’t think i’ll ever find it
i’m a little caged in

in this place i come from.
