I just sent out an SOS,
to higher life forms up in space,
in hope that they will see this mess,
and choose to save the human race.
I wrote how it’s gone wrong down here,
how Earth is trapped in slavery,
how leaders lead with lies and fear,
and practise the unsavoury.
I told them we make lovely tools,
like bicycles and kitchen scales,
but even so, we’re bloody fools,
who still believe in fairy tales.
I said that we hoard rubbish here,
we’re measured by how much we own,
rewarded when we’re insincere,
and punished when compassion’s shown.
I told them it’s a pyramid,
where drones below feed banks on top,
who rain down lies and fear amid
their ranks, so they’re too scared to stop.
I warned them that they might get hurt,
that we’re quite numb to violence now,
that we’ll put nukes on red alert,
if someone spooks the sacred cow.
I hope they get my signal soon
and they can aid us in our plight
I’ll shine my torch towards the moon
to guide them if they come tonight.
