We Are the Aliens We’ve Been Waiting For 

We Are the Aliens We’ve Been Waiting For 

Navy pilots, have you heard,
Are talking to reporters
From the Times
and from the Post
About what they’ve seen
In the skies — UFOs
And who knows
What those could be
Space people? ETs?
Let’s just say they are
Let’s just say they see
Society’s catastrophes
And, let’s just say they say:
We’d like to turn your globe
into a salutary garden
End the wars, and poverty,
and property, and properly
Establish peace
The only thing we’d need
In exchange is your support
Because we’d all outnumber them
By such a massive margin
There’d be no need to resort to force
Something that could happen,
Actually, with no space people at all
Here on planet Earth
