I asked a fish to imagine dry land, he gurgled,”ain’t no such thing!”
I talked to a bird of undersea life and she shrugged a baffled wing:
My dog asked me if I could tell men apart by footfall or smell–
A dolphin asked if I could “telepathe” but I didn’t have a clue!
I dreamt also that we’re evolved from the oceans of earth:
Sharing DNA and a common heritage at birth;
If we cannot live together, empathise, converse,
Why are we dreaming of an extra-terrestrial universe?
