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
