Below, no more far fetched than Kafka’s deliberation on guilt and justice in “The Trial,” a consideration that altered many a reader’s sense of consciousness.
By Odin Roark
We're perceived as ugly
With only two arms
And two eyes
Strange hair growth
Surrounding that which emits sound?
We look back at them
Acknowledge multiple appendages
What they perceive
Changing the color of their bodies?
Represent help for aliens to understand
Man's regression into
Pre-multiple cell life reason?
Might that bring man's elected officials
To a modicum of auditory
And visceral awareness?
Enough to make aliens pity
Enough to cause governing consciousness to awaken
Enough to reclaim sentient being identity?
