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.
