Michael Jackson-Planet Earth

 During The Dangerous Era, Michael Jackson wrote a New York Times Best Seller-"Dancing The Dream"! Within it's contents of poems, a snippet of "Planet Earth" was chosen for The Dangerous Album Booklet.

 An abridged version was considered(with Michael reciting each poem) but was thwarted at the last second. And it was during one of these dry-runs that Sony has preserved for the soundtrack to This Is It! A double-disc set featuring 14 of his greatest-hits with two takes on This Is It(a demo recorded in 1982) on one disc. With three never-before-heard demos which close-off with the spoken-word demo(I know what your thinkin' "Ripoff" And I'd say gazoontight). But let's be content with what we have(as long as Sony doesn't pull it off again "smile").

 I believe this poem right here proves that Michael Jackson hated Darwinism and his whole evolutionary web of lies! We are more then cellulites from a pond of scum. This terrestrial ball is way more then the third rock from the Sun. That's because a divine artist has breathed into it so much more.

Planet Earth, my home, my place
A capricious anomaly in the sea of space
Planet Earth, are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust
A minor globe, about to bust
A piece of metal bound to rust
A speck of matter in a mindless void
A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid

Cold as a rock without a hue
Held together with a bit of glue
Something tells me this isn't true
You are my sweetheart, soft and blue
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart
Tender with breezes, caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.

In my veins I've felt the mystery
Of corridors of time, books of history
Life songs of ages throbbing in my blood
Have danced the rhythm of the tide and flood
Your misty clouds, your electric storm

Were turbulent tempests in my own form
I've licked the salt, the bitter, the sweet
Of every encounter, of passion, of heat
Your riotous color, your fragrance, your taste
Have thrilled my senses beyond all haste

In your beauty I've known the how
Of timeless bliss, this moment of now.

Planet Earth, are you just
Floating by, a cloud of dust
A minor globe, about to bust
A piece of metal bound to rust
A speck of matter in a mindless void
A lonely spaceship, a large asteroid

Cold as a rock without a hue
Held together with a bit of glue
Something tells me this isn't true
You are my sweetheart, soft and blue
Do you care, have you a part
In the deepest emotions of my own heart
Tender with breezes, caressing and whole
Alive with music, haunting my soul.

Planet Earth, gentle and blue
With all my heart, I love you.
