Best Jack Horne Poems

+ Fav Poet


The beauty takes my breath away,
I know my kind will want to stay
On this new world that I have found -
It’s somewhere in the Milky Way.

The creatures of this wondrous place
Are scaly lizards, wild and base.
Such monstrous things must be destroyed
So we can spawn another race.

I take a sample of the turf,
Report the planet has such worth,
Then leave and freeze the world in ice
To kill these dinosaurs on Earth.

    So THAT's how the dinosaurs died! Some sci-fi movies depict aliens with reptile features, so you had me going for a while, Jack. Will the aliens return to bestow another Ice Age? Wait and see, my friend... This poem goes to my favorites! Love, Carolyn
