'' Then Evil Will Lead Us Astray ''

When the aliens arrived on our beloved Earth,
We refused to allow their craft to berth,
As for compassion there was a dearth,
Our visitors were filled with dismay.

While some of the humans offered assistance,
The other half put up a resistance,
After travelling all that distance,
Their fears we had to allay.

Though they had powers beyond our control,
There were those among us who refused to console,
Their superiority they would not extol,
Our visitors they wanted to betray.

Despite the fact that they came here in peace,
Our visitors craft they refused to release,
It was their technology they wanted to fleece,
To steal it there’d be no delay.

The aliens warned them there is no going back,
If you force our tentacles we will surely attack,
But in times of greed common sense we did lack,
Humans were determined to cause them affray.

When their craft was held and then secured,
That’s when they told us to rest assured,
The views of their enemies were being obscured,
They wouldn’t stand for foul play.

Throughout our universe your probes have been found,
Your effect on other life forms has been really profound,
They said you sent for us not the other way round,
So why this aggressive display.

Their superior intelligence soon made us cower,
No weapons required just an alien glower,
We were forced to concede to their astonishing power,
Their enemies then all ran away.

Your messages to us speak of peace loving creatures,
Of love and compassion your are the teachers,
From what we’ve witnessed you’ve got none of these features,
What you do is lead others astray.

In life there’s someone more clever than you,
Rather than acknowledge it you cause them ado,
Your misconception you’re superior is in need of a review,
Total conceit is what you portray.

It’s this arrogance and greed that are costing us dear,
That’s why we’re living in a world filled with fear,
If with God’s commandments we refuse to adhere,

Just a reminder that unless we stop destroying that which keeps us alive we are heading for the exit door, it's called extiction.

It is the hour when from the boughs

And gentle winds and waters near,
