Glass and plastic and paper products,

piling up in my kitchen.

We separate and clean them every day.

It’s a mortal sin this day and time,

to throw a piece of styrofoam away.

We should call all those scientists up

on the telephone,

And give them all a cussin’

For depleting our ozone.

After all it must have been,

Their undisclosed intention,

To kill off all of mankind,

With their convenient inventions.

Take back plastic and gasoline!

And all those gifts you gave.

And all of us and our families,

Can move back into caves!

Well…I guess a little trouble,

To clean up the mess we’re in,

Won’t be too bad to make up

For science’s boners.

I don’t even want to waste,

My old body when I die,

So I signed myself up to be,

An organ donor!

Go Boldly….

In all the Universe there are probably no other beings like we humans. I know that science has found there are many Earth like planets out there, but Earth like is not Earth.

When you think about the fact that we alone may be the only intelligent life in the cosmos it is a daunting thought. I realize that many people don’t believe we are “alone” in the Universe, but so far there is no proof to the contrary…Star Wars and Star Trek notwithstanding.

It leads me to think that humanity has a huge responsibility. We have an obligation to find a way forward to peace. We have almost a sacred trust to preserve our species.

There is either meaning to life, or not. We can believe that this tiny sand grain sanctuary of living things in the huge beach which is the Universe, is just an accident comprised of some chemicals and some warm water and sunshine, or we can believe there is meaning.

I believe there is meaning, perhaps the ultimate meaning in our existence.

Until I see some alien spaceship come flying in, or see a spiritual manifestation telling me differently, I am going to assume our meaning and our purpose is to settle our earthly differences and then “go boldly where no man (or woman) has gone before”.

Go boldly and discover the truth.


We must tread carefully but precisely. Always moving forward, and not retreating from those fearful things we must step around. Our goal must be the truth, and we cannot stop short of getting there.
