Aliens

Written by: Jack Ellison



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
