French Fries on Mars. (Limerick)

From today’s Wall Street Journal:

Researchers at the Lima-based International Potato Center and scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are studying which type of potato could be best suited for extraterrestrial farming to support a human settlement on Mars. If everything goes as planned, the Martian colonies could be munching on french fries, chips and mashed potatoes one day.

When growing revised spuds on Mars

whilst on our dread way to the stars,

could we tend tomatoes

along with potatoes?

No ketchup would leave profound scars . . .
