                       There’s no way life on Earth can be unique
                       Throughout the vast infinitude of space,
                       And now we have good instruments to seek
                       Out evidence of such a cosmic race,
                       Who may by now have even found us out
                       In spaceships from some galaxy afar,
                       Though yet such evidence remains in doubt
                       And most reports less credent than bizarre.
                       I’d say a wiser race would bide their time
                       Until humanity had grown sane
                       And able to discern what’s more sublime,
                       Taking our culture to a higher plane.
                            For only then might we deserve to learn
                            What truly noble creatures can discern.
