Grip of reality


get a grip of reality
living in penny dreadful sea
is not the same in episode
got plasma, cathode and anode
in our own way, fend our abode
clean our acts before it explode
wave our magic wand, let it snowed
before sedated moribund
stelliferous a-la-mode
reference to famous shipload
save our world we come with a plea
being responsible is key*
