I Come From Jupiter by Mumpuni Murniati

You asked me where I’m from.
Jupiter. The planet.
Am I mocking you? I've come to invade the Earth.

If I said I was brought up in this country and the same goes with you, you wouldn’t like it. If I said I had a degree and paid my taxes, suddenly I am a liar.

I’m dark, no problem. But I’ve got a heart and limbs just like you.

Is it this thing on my head – a long piece of cloth that bothers you?
Say it again – not proper for this country?
We don't speak the same language, do we?

I come from Jupiter.
