Take That!

Greetings, brother
From a distant mother,
From one sapient to another:
There’s no nonsense you should brook.
So, may I suggest a book
At which you should take a look?

For, to understand us well
There’s a quick way you can tell
What goes on in each brain cell
Of our native human race.
So, just name the time and place
And your mind we soon will grace

With the pages of a tome
That will place you right at home
Anywhere on Earth you roam.
For we humans cannot fake
How much joy that we would take
Watching you read
Finnegans Wake

PROMPT: “The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?”

Note : we inflict worse things on college students pretty much daily.
