the prayers

there were two ways to get to the moon
one by his own hands crafting a spaceship
the other by waiting for the aliens to bring you there!

but yet you may think that the aliens shall always
be more developed and smart than us
and that we should befriend them because our technology
will never supplant theirs

in that case, they will bring knowledge to us and if
we wait enough, we will travel and live better by
their means only and their desire will be to be called saviors

of the human races

so that they won't need to interfere, we will be indulged
to prayers and parked in human's zoos and be nourished
and our dreams will bleach and our freedom will vanish

all that make mankind proud of itself
