Keep Off Sign (for Earth Day)

I imagine a giant Hollywood sign it goes:

"Keep Away You UFOs!""

"Bypass! All Good Aliens!" says the huge

keep off this grass sign I propose,

"by wise design for all that

you hold fine, if your ethics

are as I suppose, better than ours

intelligent life from far-off stars.

Avoid! this place for all your worth

I cannot recommend this planet Earth.

All the graces Nature provided

mankind foolishly derided.

It is not run to good purposes

by its divided leaders

the human beings are selfish bleeders

those benign creatures: porpoises.

Yes, we headed for space

but that was rivals in a race

we eat our pets and hit each other

kill our families and lovers

every religion promotes hate

yet there is Poetry, so wait!

Seeing this sign by happenstance

give us a chance."

Worthy & fun, yes. Insightful, too:

 

Yes, we headed for space
but that was rivals in a race

 

Always competition, not cooperation......

Some lovely lines that promote wry smiles--- "we eat our pets and hit each other." :smile: G.
