Intelligent Life In The Universe


In one second of a life reflecting
From a moment that’s been left in a loft
I remember meeting an astronomer
While visiting the seascapes of Denmark

I asked him a question which was pertinent
To the mutual interest that was collative
I asked him “Do you think its possible
That there is life in this indefinite universe

He hoodwinked a smile of confidence
And said with a voice of assurance

“Yes I believe there’s intelligent life
For the fact that it’s not come to earth
Proves that it’s made a wise choice”

Then I left that man to wonder
As I went outside to ponder
Looking up at the night I whispered

“Please take me with you”

    It's funny how keen we are to find other life in the universe when what we really need are some suitable spare uninhabited planets to spread out on. Certainly a reasonable theory presented in your poem and a great last line. (Report) Reply
