State of Denial

I am convinced that we should be.
Investing in technology.
to study scientifically.
The slightest possibility.

That we are watched by UFOs.
At the moment no one knows.
It seems the powers that be propose
to just ignore it: I suppose

they are afraid it might be true
and do not know what they should do.
They know no more than me and you
but privately they hold the view.

We should be kept in ignorance.
The usual government stance.
