Dan Man's Gone ― Day 30 of NaPoWriMo 2015

Dan the man, the Destructible Dan Man
Came aboard the Mars 2-15 Express
It was a one way ticket, no return
No return ever, meaning not ever
Only UP this ride would go, goodbye all
Okay with Dan, he hated this world
Hated everyone, hated his family
Father and mother, wife and children, all
Full of hatred he, had a plan for all
On his way to Mars, there's no return, safe
Destructible Dan Man, he killed them all
He threw their bodies in the backyard well
5, 4, 3, 2, Lift off, we've had lift off 
The Mars 2-15 has cleared the launch pad
No remorse, safe now, "Dan Man out of here"

I love that this reads like a Johnny Cash song, had Johnny Cash been a martian folk hero. What a clever twist to the prompt. Thanks for posting and viva la!!!!!

I wonder about people who are so anxious to take a one way ride to Mars. I've always figured they haven't thought it through, but your dark alternative is certainly a possibility. I know I missed a few days, but kudos on making through the April 30/30, Jim.

Yowza! I love that the means of transport is rather steampunk. :)
I recently read the novel The Martian. That guy didn't kill anyone, but he did end up alone. Really good, recommended if you haven't already read it.
