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

we’ve never taken well to newbies.

i come from a bland
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.
