Worldly Encounters: A song, a movie and a book


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Worldly Encounters.”

The friendly extraterrestrial intoned in a somnolent voice,

“What book, song or movie would you recommend so that I can learn to be human from humans? Is it ‘Romeo and Juliet’?

Macbeth? or even The Lion King?

I pondered a while,

then said,

“if it’s a movie, you ought to catch, ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’,

If it’s a song, then perhaps two will do,

‘Money, money, money’ and ‘We are the World’,

and if it’s a book you want, you can’t go wrong reading the all-time bestseller, ‘The Bible’.
