Life on Other Planets?

Contact with Extra-Terrestrials?

 

By Elton Camp

 

Our galaxy is an enormous place

Extends into the depths of space

Even a “nearby” star is so far

Trip there physics does bebar

 

Even at light’s amazing speed

Full four years we would need

Spaceship can never go that fast

So many decades trip would last

 

Would make very hard the rule

To take with it enough fuel

Also would be incredible feat

To carry along enough to eat

 

If on the way, vessel needs repair

Not a single soul will ever be there

Own mending you must try

Not good enough?  You die.

 

Really, to it is no need to go.

Has no planets, experts know

It is true many planets have been found

Outside our own solar system’s bound

 

 Most nothing but a gassy ball

Can’t support human life at all

Few found with solid crust

But dry, hot covered by dust

 

Perhaps a place like Earth is there

But we have not a clue as to where

Naught to put us right on the track

To find needle in cosmic haystack

 

SETI has listened well for many a year

Not a single intelligent signal to hear

Does it mean nobody is out there?

Or to make contact they don’t care?

 

Maybe aliens are more advanced than we.

Have found some way our Earth to see.

Discovered just how they can stay alive

While exceeding light with warp drive

 

If space is curved like they say,

Wormholes may show the way

If find there some cosmic kink,

Travel through space in a wink

 

Why in space-time should they slip?

What here could be worth the trip?

 Why would they come so very far

To view a planet of hate and war?
