UFO

Unwelcome visitor lands in field
Farmer goes out to investigate
Our hero wonders what he will see

Upward he looks into the night sky
Fast approaching ships are all around
Over and under all the lights dance

Unfortunately he's on his own
Friend or foe he did not really know
One man feeling he is without hope

Undulating wheat covers the ground
Fire is the answer that he seeks
One tiny match sets the field aflame

Up and away the saucers all fly
Fleeing from the blaze that he had set
Our hero looks up and waves goodbye

Project U.F.O.
I used U.F.O. for each stanza and wrote about U.F.O.s for good measure.
For form I chose I do not Know, I thought it would be good to choose Unidentified
Form Of  Poetry  otherwise known as  U.F.O.P

    I was totally in a "War of the Worlds", "Orson Welles" frame of mind as I read this. Love the subject matter. Fun read; great job!

    I am seeing that he put at the top the poems that actually were about UFO's. hahaha. I just couldn't think of a thing to say about UFO"s. BIG congrats on your well deserved win.

    Very nice Richard and a neatly wrapped up story. You chose to write it pretty much the same as I, carrying on the ufo starts through each stanza. Congratulations. love, Joyce

    I enjoyed your footnotes here as well, and it was really cool how you went "all out" to use U F O in every stanza plus make it about actual UFO. I think it will earn you brownie points!!

    Oh wow, you caught me off-guard there. I didn't even realize the "UFO" acrostic side to this... clever! I don't know what I'd do if aliens landed (probably bust out my camera, like a true American... haha). I like to see people going outside the box and in this you sure do... good work!

    Geez, I admire how you managed to bring "UFO" down all the way - right into the wheat field, so to speak. Your farmer is a hero indeed for sending those visitors back their way. lol @ UFOP. Good luck with the contest, Richard. Nice entry :)
