Aliens

Tabloid psychics have foretold
Of strangers from the skies -
Bringing wonders to behold,
Dazzle-ing our eyes.

A cure for every cancer,
An end to every war.
To every quest an answer
We did not have before.

Would we gather to embrace
And welcome them to Earth?
Could we of the Human race
Accept their alien birth?

Or would we tell the strangers
Another world to find,
Because we feared what dangers
They might bring to Humankind?

How, until we understand
Our sister and our brother,
Can we extend a friendly hand
To someone truly Other?
