"This is my planet
Land of my birth
This is my planet
We call it Earth
I pledge thee my allegiance
Orb so green, blue and bold
‘Cause this is my planet
to have and to hold!"
(Sung to the tune ‘This is My Country"- music is by Al Jacobs, the original lyrics were written by Don Raye, I only used some of them....well most of them except for planet, we, call, it, Orb, so, green, blue, 'cause. )
Maybe we need to just recognize ourselves as Earthlings,
then there would be no discrimination.
Like, ‘Hi! I’m an Earthling"
"Hey, so am I"
but I guess that wouldn’t work because then some arse
would have to ask "What land mass are you from" and
it would all go down hill from there.
And, of course, if there are aliens living here amongst us,
then it could lead to the ‘my planet is
better than your planet’ arguments.
(The response to that would be "then, E.T. go home.")
