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.

for Robert Heemstra's Project UFO Contest

    way to go in the contest, Ilene, and I just realized I have not read you in a while. I am so busy, it's hard to keep up on all my old favorites these days. Luv, Andrea

    Our own existance is very important, that's probably why they came. As for us Whacko's, I have to say, it's really not a game. :):):):)

    Hi Ilene , tks for your kind comments. I wish you well in your contest with your clever/well rhymed piece . I hope your " saucer " lands safely. I think a few " SPUTNIKS" have already landed in North Korea and I hope that's all that lands on top of them . Then again , anyone with a hair-cut like that , deserves to be nuked !!!
