Lunatics Love UFOs

(Life apart from Earth is to be expected, BUT are they visiting us in flying saucers?  An appeal to reason.)

Lunatics Love UFOs

By Elton Camp

Unidentified objects often appear in the sky
But that sure doesn’t mean that aliens fly

An important fact the lunatic fringe does curse
Light velocity is the speed limit of the universe

The next nearest star is four light years away
What, to a reasonable person, does that say?

Unless “aliens” don’t have to eat or drink
Could they make that long trip, you think?

Even if to this earth they could somehow get
How could they possibly get much benefit?

They would be vastly more advanced than we 
What, of value to them, could they possibly see?

Kill cows and abduct some ignorant hillbilly?
Doesn’t that seem, to you, extremely silly?

Those who believe in aliens, ignorance reveal
By claiming there is a vast conspiracy to conceal

UFO believers, to convince others do your worst
But expect rational folks to laugh until they burst

    That's a great illustration. It would be like one of us going to live with a jungle tribe in remote Brazil. Even if we could somehow manage to do it, why bother! Elton

    Thanks, I realize that some will think that what I have said is wrong and that we are being visited by aliens from space. Elton

    In a way, I'd like to believe aliens are visiting us, but unless major concepts of physics are wrong, that isn't possible if the beings have to eat, drink and breathe. Unless Einstein is wrong, no material object can reach light speed. Elton
