Martha & Marcia The Martians Who Made It To Mars Market

Marcia and Martha the Martians went shopping one day – they thought they’d buy something new to wear for a party in the Milky Way. All they ever wanted to be – were superstars floating off in zero gravity. Before the rainclouds got any worse, Martha picked up her purse. Marcia said it would be a good idea, if Marcia the martian waited till it was clear. Off they set, zooming round the shops – they thought they’d better hurry, they didn’t want to stop. Whilst Marcia carried the bags, Martha planted flags. Marcia almost slipped in a crater – the shopping trip was becoming greater and greater ! The space buggy had a flat tyre so it was difficult to park it – Marcia feared that everything would be sold by the time they got to market. They piled up the trolley with all kinds of stuff – there were meteorites being sold cheap and Marcia simply couldn’t get enough ! Marcia helped by carrying the box, in which they piled volcanic rocks. Martha slipped – her moonboots were too big. She landed on Marcia, who lost her wig ! Being a Martian on Mars was great – no one could tell the time other than in light years, so no – one knew if they were late !
