If we did find a new world,

In the vast array of worlds in space,

Would we ruin it like this one,

Or would we be able to keep it in God’s grace…


Would we drill for oil,

Would we kill its animal inhabitants,

Would we of its splendor spoil,

Or would we of a better life embrace,

Or would we destroy its innocence…


Man has of this world destroyed,

Making some of us quite very annoyed,

Maybe better we found another world out in spaces void,

Maybe there we can of man & his destruction avoid…


                                   …But I doubt it…

Your doubt is well founded. Patrick

Well I think we need to rethink the whole big bang theory and perhaps look at having a big pot theory instead. If all the stoners were running the politics...the most harm they could do is fog up the windows.

God Forbid that we soon find another planet to destroy - one planet on the brink of extinction is more than enough.
