Stranger at Door

Listen to poem:
What if an Alien knocked on your door would you be shocked at the intrusion? Just "Hang on will Yah", the eggs are burning. Would Google do a translation? Perhaps, perhaps not. Perhaps DuckDuckGo? Hand gestures may work but what if the being had tentacles? What if the being had no eyes as such, no ears to hear a conversation. Blurts to blubs, hand gestures, grunts, sighs of surprise, clearly fall flat for such a momentous occasion. "Can you call back tomorrow" "When I'm dressed" "The kids would like to meet Yah" I'll be better prepared, next time. ---------- https://www.bbc.com/news/av/stories-57749238 https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-to-tell-if-extraterrestrial-visitors-are-friend-or-foe/ ----------
