The Huffity puffity hour
No one would have believed
in the last years of the 19th century
that human affairs where being watched,
by intelligences that inhabited the timeless worlds of space.
No one could have dreamed we were being scrutinized,
as someone with a microscope studies creatures
that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.
Few people even considered the possibility of life on other planets
and yet, across the gulf of space,
minds immeasurably superior to ours
regarded this Earth with envious eyes,
and slowly and surely
they drew their plans against us.
