Waiting game

In a world of darkness

In a world of floating rock debris

In a world of total silence

Many light years from you and me

A probe is search taking images

And reconoitering.

I wonder if in the far off place

Way among the cosmos

Alien lifeforms study this

With curious intent and think

See they show signs of intelligence

But sadly their brutal, warlike ways

And desire for destruction and violence

Will alway keep them isolated

From other universal orders

Who see our egotistical ways

Bringing us go the edge if our own extinction

And ponder gravely and wait patiently to see

If we can awaken enough to stop

This mad lemmjng charge to the cliffs edge

Or is this truly man’s destiny

To rush and fall to our own end

Because we were blinded by ignorance, arrogance and greed

Are we sowing humanities final seed

While other being wait and can scarcely believe

In such foolish senient folly.
