               Let’s not forget: the Universe made us,
               Which reasonably implies there’s life elsewhere,
               A happy reckoning, not ominous,
               For if we meet, we’ll have much good to share.

               Forget the science fiction aliens
               With conquest and destruction on their minds;
               Those who come here are bound to be our friends
               With nothing but inquisitive designs.

               And once we’ve learned how to communicate,
               Think of all the stories that they’ll tell
               And all the information they’ll relate
               Of where they’ve ventured and where others dwell.

                    And, best of all, how they made warfare cease,
                    Finding the cosmic paragon of peace.
