Omphalos

Human alien

Is humankind alone? Are other beings out in space?
Of this I cannot know. But I know our human race
Is center to the drama that involved the Son of Man
And Son of God in dying to fulfill His Father’s plan.

If this is so: then humankind is special in degree
Unique: unable to be matched by any life that be.
Alone men bear God’s image. And for men alone God died.
Not even for the angels was God’s Son then crucified.

Are aliens superior to men? Well I can guess
They’re hardly that. I think it far more likely they are less.
For this our Earth is omphalos: we hold the central stage
In the universal drama still unfolding in our age.
