Communication skills

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?
