We all flew to the Moon
Conquered polio and [sadly] each other
Celebrated our children
Father and dear mother
We Zydeco and ballet
And jingle our bling
But we ought to celebrate more that~
“I am an Earthling!”

Yes be proud to be American
Or Chinese or Swede
Black or Indian
Or any chosen religion or creed
Being descended of paupers
Princes and/or kings
But remember, dear friends,
You are, firstly, Earthlings

We’re hundreds of cultures
Traditions and dishes
Dining on the birds
Wild game and fishes
Then we wash it all down
With wine, beer, or most any thing
Yet we thrive, because
‘I am an Earthling’

So, do remember your homeland
And practice good diversity
Study life’s abundant variety
And do well at university
But heaped all together
It doesn’t mean a thing
If you let yourself forget
You are first just an Earthling


About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
