I think only when space aliens threaten us



I think only when space aliens threaten us
will there be
sleek bullet trains and green-grid volts,
science-trained brains and high-speed nets,
great public spaces of pleasure and arts,
a people-first sense of a future day.

We need space aliens to threaten US
to do what we could have done anyway
—without all the stifling, moronic fuss.
