Earth by John Hall Wheelock

Earth

“A planet doesn’t explode of itself,” said drily
The Martian astronomer, gazing off into the air –
“That they were able to do it is proof that highly
intelligent beings must have been living there.”

-John Hall Wheelock

Borrowed from Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle
