Alien Encounter

The likelihood of seeing,
a non terrestrial, intelligent, thinking being,
greeting you with a friendly wave,
and announcing that his name is Dave,
and asking you to take him to your leader.
Is about as possible as hearing,
that the day is actually nearing,
when equality and fairness,
replace the general, couldn't care less
attitude, which today is prevalent,
and which is really quite malevolent.
What do you think dear reader?

    Actually, I can see the encounter with an alien named Dave happening before a general level of equality and fairness within the human race....oh yeah, hands down lol. Thanks for the entertainment.
