Another Point of View

There is no world beyond this one we know
With dominant bipeds and skies of blue
And lack of compassion and love we show.

Perhaps there could be life where the stars glow,
Blinking and pulsating their reddish hue.
There is no world beyond this one we know.

Do they have one arm where three ought to go
Or the same old three per side as we do,
And lack of compassion and love we show?

Maybe they just study the winds that blow
And believe this statement is likely true:
“There is no world beyond this one we know.”

Far away beings beyond sun beam throw
Would not like me any more than they you,
Or lack of compassion and love we show.

We are building ships to make light speed slow,
To take us to the wall of time, and through.
Is there no world but this one we know,
with this uncompassionate love we show?

    Thank you, Skat! Yes, it was a stretch; I'll admit that much, but I was counting on the "Where no one has gone before" element of the theme. :-)
