On Extra-Terrestrial Life

I accept the existence of saucers,
I concede there’s a case
To be made for believing that something’s achieving
the conquest of space;

I find it completely convincing
Whenever I hear
That creatures from Venus were recently seen
As a spaceship drew near:

And yet there’s a problem remaining
That baffles me still.
I’m not disagreeing that some super being
Can wander at will

From one universe to another-
But if it be thus why on earth (so to speak)
Should he bother to seek
Any contact with us?

    & our next stop, zeltches and gentlezeltches, is the curious and quaint planet earth.

    Please do not feed the animals.

    Because they are lost and not too proud to stop and ask directions

    They come for the American Digest posts… like the fabulous, wonderful story of the fortress in Paradise. Nothing like it on their home planets.

    If they came so far to get here… and if truly they are here… they need money. They want money. I don’t care if they appear to be French poodles… I don’t want to owe the poodles any money.

    Hell I agree….I can’t afford to owe the poodles any money!

    The poodle bites…. the poodle chews it.

    Naive to think we are the only biological in these vast universes. Last summer, I glimpsed one, our group was all rafted up on the lake, next to a feature called Buck Island. An evening of much booze, food, and sex. At three am, I was peeling off the top of the houseboat.

    As I watched a viewed an odd colored light, maybe a foot or two off the water, race past. Covered twenty miles in seconds. Na had to be the Don Julio. Those things don’t exist, just ask your govt.

    Mentioned the encounter over breakfast, one of the wives on the other side of the boat raft admitted she’s seen it too. Two quick shots, a dip in the lake, those silly observations were out the door.

    I Believe!.

    What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?

    UFO’s, ghosts, the Loch Ness monster, Bigfoot, et al.
    Whether we really do believe this stuff is neither here, nor there. We all secretly want these things to be real, though. Given the choice, who would say, “I don’t want to see one.”?
