Aliens



If aliens visited Earth today They'd be shocked and totally saddened That we haven't yet made it past infancy Silly wars we haven't abandoned Still haven't learned the secret As to why we humans exist If we think it's man's inalienable right There's a fact we've totally missed Nobody owes us a thing in this world Up to us to follow the right path With thoughts of love for every being Against wars and its terrible wrath If aliens visited Earth today They'd be saddened and feel such pain Thousands of years we've inhabited Earth The ills that plague us are the same We're the aliens right here on Earth Haven't yet discovered the secret As they fly away you can hear them say We give up, you guys can keep it! ©Jack Ellison 2012

    Wonderful poem! So with all our faults and vices / They leave us to our own devices / abandoning us like some bad seed / During our most desperate time of need.

    The aliens live among us... My hubby thinks I'm one some times... snicker... Each improvement one person and one thing at a time... Tho we are a little slow at it all... But that's because no one listens to each other... We have to be older to start listening and then we're too tired... Sigh... But never give up and never surrender...

    Funny, I was watching a movie about Aliens last night, they weren't as nice as your Aliens. If you have a chance Jack check out my new Form, I call it Understepping. I would appreciate your feedback.

    I was watching Barbara Striesand being interviewed and she talked about a hidden message in a poem her father wrote befor she was born and I got to thinking I could come up with a way to hide a line withinn the body of a poem. I added the sylable count for a degree of difficulty.

    Lol, wouldn't it be funny if we see them? They would say "let me help you" as they feel sorry for us, ha ha. Anyway, funny write, Jack. For some reasons, I think they are so cute or is it just me, lol?
