They're Coming




What if all of a sudden there was a spaceship descending from the sky…the networks would break in for ‘breaking news’ with breathless reports…at least I hope they would…of course we wouldn’t want to interrupt any fascinating ‘reality’ shows…this would be the ultimate reality wouldn’t it?...that being said, you couldn’t depend on them to give you the truth…they would either mislead you with their own opinionated slant or they would be typically clueless about what they were reporting…would you feel frightened?...curious?...excited?…would you run for a ‘safe spot’…like there are any safe spots on earth anymore…it seems you can’t get away from just about anything anymore…what could we expect of our visitors?...should we even expect anything?...if we did, maybe we would be disappointed…what would they want, if anything?...what would they do?...perhaps they would dazzle us with their brilliance…their outstanding knowledge…or maybe we couldn’t communicate with them at all…that’s not a given that we could…or maybe they wouldn’t even want to communicate with us…perhaps they would be bored or disappointed at what they found…we think we’re great, but we’re not so great…people are still starving… the planet is being destroyed…man finds new ways to be cruel to each other…all these years and we still haven’t learned to get along with one another…the same hatreds…the same prejudices…the same selfishness…it never ends…all these thousands of years and we’re still dealing with the same idiocy…perhaps they would just shake their heads, or whatever they had…with all that, I don’t think they’d come here with their guns-a-blazin’…would they try to take over?...maybe, maybe not…
