Fermi'S Paradox      
                          
                                          
 On  Earth (The Planet Where  I  Live)  A 
 Lot  Of Us  Have Antennas  On Our Houses 
 Or  Balconies,   We  Have   Built  Large 
 Antennas  For Larger  Bandwith, We  Have 
     Build Specialized Antennaes For      
    Specific Wavelengths (And Sent Them   
 Into  Orbit), We'Ve Built  Large As Fuck 
              Antenna Arrays              
 We'Ve Virtually Built  An Antenna With A 
          Dish As Large As Earth.         
                                          
 We'Ve  Learned About Our Position In The 
      Solar System, Our Solar Systems     
 Placement   In   The   Galaxy,  And  Our 
 Galaxys Placement In The  Local Cluster, 
 And  Our  Local  Clusters Place In The 
          Grand Scheme Of Things          
                                          
 And  We'Re  Moving  Around  The  Sun  At 
 Velocity And The Suns  Moving Around The 
 Center  Of  The  Galaxy  At Velocity And 
 The Galaxy Is  Moving  Toward  Andromeda 
   And We'Re Both Moving Anticlockwise    
 Around  The Galaxy.  And We As A Species 
 Have Learned To Take All That In Account 
                                          
 And  Despite  All This, Despite  All Our 
   (Cliche) Beaming Of Fucking Stellar    
 Radio Programmes Out  In  Fucking  Space 
 At  The Speed  Of  Light  (Light  Is Our 
 Medium! Goodspeed You, Black Emperor!),  
      Despite Ghosts Helping And The      
     Collective Consciousness Lowpass     
    Filtering, Despite Our Very Obvious   
 Beaming  Of All  Our  Secrets  In  Every 
          Direction Known To Us,          
                                          
 No      One        Has       Answered

              So Why Is That?             
                                          
 Most Opponents To  Intelligent  Life  In 
 The Universe Say  It'S  Because You Need 
 A Class One-Or-The-Other  Star  And  The 
 Planet  Needs  To  Be  At  A  See-And-So 
 Distance Away From The Star  (Like There 
           Has To Be A Planet!)           
                                          
 But  Really   Isn'T  That  Keeping   The 
      Definition Of Life Really Lax?      
                                          
 I Think  Everyone Agrees That We Have No 
 Idea What We'Re  Doing (And It  Probably 
                  Shows)
