Guess who’s coming to dinner…

     “Just a little pinprick…”
        [Inspired by Pink Floyd’s song Comfortably Numb+]

I’m not from here. - You should know this by now.
I was brought from another place, not this one.
I hear Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb+ playing somewhere….
What strange place is this I have found Gaia, horribly crestfallen.

Who would know? - No one here seems to understand,
to understand just how desperate her situation is…
There’s a guest who’s been here for quite a while,
watching, taking note, howling for such vivisection,

Gaia bleeding in so many ways, few in mourning of her,
though many mourning their own fate at others’ hands,
the hands who’ve plundered and turned her inside out.
So, who’s next? - Only this place, isolated way back,

way back in this backwater part of the galaxy where,
where for some reason all eyes are focused, all eyes.
Nothing is being done here in a vacuum, all see,
especially galaxies billions of light years from hence.

So much hard responsibility to bear of those here, those,
those who have plundered and murdered with delight,
genocides, one and another after another, Gaia wincing,
knowing she is also their hard target, but…

Guess Who’s coming to reap what He did not sow here,
in this place that was and is His from its very beginning?
“Hellow, hellow, hellow…, is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me. - Is there anyone at home?

…Can you show me where it hurts?”
