Most of Richard's poems to me are sociological parallels, describing an injustice in our lives, to a unexpected, completely different theme or subject. Parable like with hard, coarse, language, that is played for impact to the reader. Point driven metaphor.

Richard,

Excellent poem. There's really a lot to it. The rhymes give it a sort of whimsical style, but the visitor from Abell 520 is very serious in his condemnation of humans. I see a little similarity to what I was trying to do in my poem "The Chrononaut" this month, but yours seems like it's working on a much larger scale than mine. Your character's condemnation seems galactic to me and much more definitive. This deserves multiple readings. Good work. :)
