If By Chance

If by chance a million years from now

Some explorers from outer space

Find this planet barren and scarred

In a wobbly orbit

Around the sun

And if by chance they discover the

Ruins of civilization by rummaging

Through our waste piles,

I hope they do not say

They have discovered intelligent life

For as we live today

We know better.
