I've had this on the go for a few years, still may tinker with it, I'm hearing a talking blues kinda thing,

Donít Land On Earth.

In another world in distant galaxy
A man asked his wise old friend
He said Iím going on vacation
Is there a planet you recommend,
His friend looked up to the stars
And said go anywhere you want to
But donít visit earthlings
Theyíll capture and kill you.

and he said
Donít land on earth
Itís a treacherous place
Thereís greed and deceit
Behind every face,
Leaders sip champagne
To freshen their breath
Poison in the air
Lingers everywhere
Donít land on earth.

The man was really bewildered
His world is a peaceful one
There are no locks on any doors
And not so much as a wooden gun,
His friend slowly bowed his head
Sometimes wisdom is a heavy load
Then he spoke about wars
And vests that explode.

and he said
Donít land on earth
Itís tragic but true
The depth of misery
Will overwhelm you.
Power and money
Breed violence and theft,
From city to cave
Thereís nowhere safe
Donít land on earth.

Well the man shook his wise friends hand
With a truly thankful grip,
His friend said heed my advice
And have a nice galactic trip.

and he said
Donít land on Earth
Thereís weapons galore
Choose a better world
To see and explore,
The fighting started
When our ancestors left,
In the universe
Thereís nowhere worse
Donít land on earth.
yeah
In the universe
There's nowhere worse
Don't land on Earth.

A very unusual one John but something that may have been discussed by our alien brethren down at the bar, or WMC.
No suggestions, well written and I hope you make it into a song

Donít land on earth
Itís a treacherous place
Thereís greed and deceit
Behind every face,
Leaders sip champagne
While children starve to death,
Thereís torture and hate
Murder and rape
Donít land on earth.

Good advice!

Hi again John,

Long time no see,

I really like this. A Lot. I think it would make a wonderful blues song except...

The dark parts like children starving and torture...

Yeah, that's all true but it absolutely kills the humor. At least for me.

This tune has to walk a REALLY fine line. And IMO you've gone over it a bit.

I'd say, reel in the darkness just a bit and you could have an absolute winner...

Peace,

Ian

John, You're obviously interested in the possibility of extraterrestrials, so I recommend this book.
