I've been told,
Aliens called "Humans"
Exsist on "Earth",
Such peculiar names to describe themselves,
I couldn't climb my sleeping pod
And fall into slumber,
The human muses penetrate my cognition.
How are they like?
Are they beautiful like us?
Are they amicable like I am?
Are they goofy or serious?
Do they wear clothes?
Do they eat with their nostrils?
Do they live underwater?
Do they have real families unlike us?
Do they have violet sky like ours?
What kind of vehicles do they use to get around?
Or are they horrible, selfish creatures,
Like my synthetic parent told me?
I hope to meet them someday,
And know all the answers to my questions,
I hope to bring my Earth friends to my planet
And show them around and play games.
Thinking all about this,
I said to myself,
"This is going to be a long night".
(At the same time,
There was another kid on Earth
Having similar thoughts about
Our alien friends.)
