Planetary Heartburn

NaPoWriMo’s prompt today was to write a personal ad. I kept getting “PO Box 9847” by the Monkees in my head. Here was today’s effort.

Planetary Heartburn

Large single blue sphere.
3rd house down Sun Street.
Corner of Milky Way.
Bad case of indigestion.
Warring bacterium infiltration.
Seeking powerful antacid.
Send suggestions to Dr. Moon.
