Having spent the last week or so ranting about US gun laws and Utter Stupidity (the two terms being interchangeable) it occurs to me that other species of our planet must observe us and wonder what all the hype about ‘intelligence’ is.
Combining that with our continuing failure to face the realities of climate change (my own nation being amongst the worst offenders) …. and all that flora and fauna might be beginning to realise that the accident of our birth is turning out to have been a very serious accident indeed.
There is no way, of course, that I can express the sentiment nearly as well as did Eric Idle, who said ….
“So remember, when you’re feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere out in space,
‘Cause there’s bugger all down here on Earth!”
There is little more I can do, therefore, to limit my own stupidity, other than focus on just being merely silly. As follows ….
Behold the astral goat my friend
The snout that sniffs, the ears that bend
Receiving signals from the stars
Messages to Earth from Mars
Beware as well the winged baboon
That flies up there above the moon
And looks down on your wretched face
From vantage points in outer space
And fear you should the cosmic bee
Her nectar through the galaxy
The psychic moose that’s on the loose
Dark matter ducks, the Gibbous Goose
Look down my friend, but don’t look up
The universe is just a pup
But it will soon become the beast
It’s wrath and fury soon released
Await the final sacred cow
Go hide beneath the blankets now
Lest you be like the dinosaur
A victim of a meteor
Please look after your kids.
