all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

The Aliens’ Plan to Destroy Evil Human Beings, II

Across the Vast Expanse of Space

What technology
is needed to traverse a
great galactic span?

NASA’s scientists
could calculate such figures
if anyone can.

Aliens, they yell,
may construct starships and come
to earth and kill man.

(Of course, those beings,
many centuries ago,
must have hatched their plan.)

they suggest, we could impose
a coal-burning ban;

then, from far away,
aliens would halt our doom
before it began.
