We created God
And pretended
He created us
In his image
For his pleasure
When in fact
It's the other way

The Greeks said
Man is the measure
Of all things
They didn't know
Of other solar systems
And galaxies in which
Extraterrestrial intelligence may

Perhaps we should heed
The warnings of
Stephen Hawking
And lay low
Lest we become nourishment
For advanced beings
Seeking exotic foods on
New ground
