Once there was a woman with a pen
who wrote these BIG books,
that only psychopaths
on this planet could read
…the strange thing…
these psychopaths were the
leaders of this thing they called
“society” “government”
(can you believe it?)
This BIG book justified the
greed and selfishness
of these people & that what
they were doing was morally correct

You know what happened?

They were so focused on this thing
they invented called “money”
that, even if it meant destroying
the water they drank
the land they lived on
the air they breathed…
they would lie cheat and pollute
to collect more of this invention
they called “money”
but…before they knew it…

Alien Baby: What happened?

The water was poisoned
the land was unlivable
the air was unbreathable
& soon enough
these people were no longer around
to continue their path of destruction

…& before you knew it…

the water became clear and pure
the land strong and sure
the air clean
there was a future…

Alien Baby: “What planet was this?”

“Why…it’s our planet!”


“Alien Parables, part 1” is done in the style of a parable (hence the title). A story told in the future about an extinct species called “human beings”, and how greed and selfishness led to their demise. I recall my friend (and ex-Hated Uncle Dave in China), tell me that the earth isn’t the problem – once humans are gone the planet will rejuvenate itself. I thought – yeh – the planet is sick because of us, and once we’re gone, the planet will recover. Of course, we won’t be around to see that…

The 2nd video I ever did. I much prefer it to “I’m Raging…”, which was definitely a newbie creation. This one is slightly less “newbie”. The days before I used my drawings for the videos.
