Chances Are?


The likelihood of seeing,
a non-terrestrial, intelligent, being,
who greets you with a friendly wave, and,
announcing that his name is Dave,
he then asks you to take him to your leader,
is about as probable as hearing,
that the day is actually nearing,
when equality and fairness,
replace the general, couldn't care less
attitude which today is rather prevalent,
and which is actually quite malevolent.
What do you think,
dear reader?

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
