Deep within the mountains
On a planet, away, but not far
There lives a different people
Who watch the yonder star

And pray it hears them calling
So they may leave this place
To find themselves a better world
Much warmer, than outer space

Here, they live in drifts of snow
Piled high and out of reach
No chance for them, to escape
These walls they cannot breach

Still they can’t help but wonder
As each day, the light grows dim
How they might venture out
But things look mighty grim

No one hears them, as they shout
Most refuse to believe it’s not fiction
And so they remain, forlorn, forgotten
Humans, once, an Earthly depiction
