Experiment Earth

A zillion miles into outer space 
Is a very, very, very big
Telescopic lens 
Someone labelled ‘alien’
Is looking at this place 
Checking out experimental
Women and men 

Several million years ago 
They planted human beings
On a planet called earth
Sent a few biologists
To make sure we would grow 
Who ended up in Spielberg films, Crucified, or worse 

Lots and lots of time went past 
Until what we know as ‘recently’
Was when it all went wrong 
Technology ran the human race 
The humans finished last 
They were spending less on medicine
More and more on bombs 

The layers in the atmosphere
Were open wide 
And no-one in outer space
Liked what they saw inside 
Animals in slavery where forests used to be
Some people with nothing
Others with more than they need

What to do with the toxic waste? 
The ocean floor is filling up
And those drums will rust away
“We could try dumping all this rubbish in outer space” 
But the aliens were listening to everything we say…. 

A zillion miles into outer space
Is a very very very big
Telescopic lens
And when an alien experiment
Starts messing up the place 
It is left to self-destruction, clear the mess and start again 
Clear the mess! Start again! 
Experiment earth 
Experiment earth 
Clear the mess! Start again!
