Oh you violent extraterrestrial cold alien rock

Object of exotic minerals and interstellar dust

Obelisk of future religions

Or end up as components of the soul's crutch

Of course, this is wishful thinking or asking for too much

As we wander if we could prevent

such impacts in another round

of the earth, make a dent.
