Morgan, Edwin. "The First Men on Mercury".


- a bizzare dialogue between the men arriving to the Mercury and the Mercury natives

- the men attempt to explain their peaceful intentions and describe the Earth

- the natives react in nonsense sounds

- gradually the language of nonsense onomatopoeic sounds infects the men and the natives seems to shift toward a more meaningful expression

- the conclusion clearly says the men are not wanted
