Until the day we know for sure,
Flying crafts will make us think
Outer space has beings who
May seem to be a missing link.
Unidentified is what
The people who’ve had sightings claim.
Many wackos hope “abduction”
Will bring them desired fame.
Still, it’s something to consider –
If such objects do appear
And their occupants surpass us,
Why would they be stopping here?
Surely there are other planets
More appealing, which is why
UFOs, if they exist,
Would more than likely pass us by.
