How they see us from afar

How they see us from afar. 
I saw a planet it was blue,
It had a white tip. and a bottom one too.
The people here are funny lot, 
Some like to kill, and some do.
Others destroy, thinking properties a toy.
They can create, so much good.
But they also build killing type stuff.
Tanks, and  Mortars, and torture chambers for you.
But hey all so build hospitals too,
What a strange bunch .we see from afar.
They fight and quarrel, for the common good.
Then take their wondered, to be loved.
Oh what miss understood, bunch these are, 
I’m  glad were looking from afar.
Life on the planet must be mad, 
Not knowing,  if your happy or sad.
Look at that place over there!
Stay away, stay clear!
Let god our lord, sort them out.
He’s the only one with such clout,
Maybe he can sort them out.
