Cooool Website… But why no M22!?!?

Greetings webmaster
In Madison, Wisconsin,
Earth, Sol, Milky Way.

Galaxies abound!
V'lk'r weeps, his verse unheard.

Foolish humans! Far apart
but not alone, we.

Quantums and parsecs
these things escape me, stranded,
M22 my home.

Well met, then, we won't
destroy your Earth. But 'til then
we will watch the skies.

Please do not send mimes.
You have been warned, Earth poet.
You are not alone.

–V'lk''r the vowel-less.
