[ IDP ] We come in Peace

was the exact phrasing from the Scalies  
declared by a mouthpiece of their race      
standing outdoor at a makeshift podium    
before their turtle shell shaped, shock      
absorbered, subatomic particle-to-wave    
phasing ambassadorial spacecraft    
     
Ever since Mary Shelley illustrated    
humans created their own monsters    
two hundred years of Science Fiction    
literature as taught us to be distrusting    
     
but when technology has failed us    
and the manmade world is rusting    
all around in a ruinous heap    
     
you dig deep for a potato clock    
existence couched in the belief    
God's designs are inherently good    
     
and that Mister Lizard moving    
his family in next door to you    
may have an awesome mancave  
to righteously get primal in
