They Walk Among Us

They Walk Among Us

By Elton Camp

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof” - Carl Sagan

The gullible will believe almost anything
From them, all kinds of wild ideas spring

Monsters reside in the depths of Loch Ness
Dinosaurs live in darkest Africa, they guess

Oh, they are certain for goodness sake
In many places there’s a large, erect ape

Our solar system has one inhabitable place
Yet, it’s invasion from deep space we face

Around many stars, we know planets rotate
But their distance from earth is very great

The immutable laws of physics have decreed
That the speed of light no object can exceed

Even if there is life on any planets out there
About enough food and water they must care

Even at light speed, years would be required
By the time they get here, they’d be expired

Yet many believe aliens have already come
“They abducted & examined me,” say some

Unusual claims there’s obligation to prove
“Put up or shut up” would such behoove
