This week the White House responded to our petition
where we demanded public recognition
of any knowledge of life other life forms,
space land happenings beyond the norm,
but, not surprisingly, they said they know nothing.
Most of us don't believe they haven't seen a thing.
We keep discovering new planets and stars
and soon we're shipping some germs to Mars.
Is it really possible we haven't seen
any aliens anywhere, be they not green?
Are they trying to create little martian men
by flinging bits of ourselves into space now and then?
It wasn't long after the White House announcement
that I heard about where the germs will be sent.
I wonder if they planned it all in one meeting?
Do they ever indulge wacky thoughts that are fleeting?
"Hey guys. After we tell the people there's no life in outer space,
want to launch some bacteria and see if it turns into a face?"
