We've Come In Peace



We thought we'd landed on virgin soil When we sailed the ocean so vast And drifted into this secluded cove Thought we'd stumbled upon the past Natives sure looked very much like us But they wore the skimpiest clothes With only one or two piece coverings Not a bad looking group by jove We motioned to them in sign language We're friendly and we've come in peace But much to our utter astonishment They spoke english with total ease Seems we stumbled on a sandy beach On the southwest coast of the state These natives were actually vacationers They thought our sailing ship was great It was really all quite embarrassing We played dumb and pretended we knew It was just our lame attempt at humour As we thanked them and bid them adieu So we all got back in our sailing ship And waved them a fond farewell We'll never forget our trip to the past It's a tale for our grandkids to tell! © Jack Ellison 2013

    You took me back in time on a very old ship... Sir, there is no doubt that you possess the most wonderful mind ever!!! So imaginative and descriptive in a way that turns everything unreal a touched reality!!!

    Is that a true story poem? WAYYY COOOL... My Trolls were missing this week... Were they sailing your ship? Remember if they're there... Don't let them do a happy dance... It's sunk more than one ship in it's time... They get a bit too enthusiastic, you know... LOL... My Dragon says he's awaiting his invitation with billowed breath... Says he's good on sail boats when the wind dies down... Yeah, if you have extra sails to replace the burned ones... snicker...

    "By Jove", that would be embarrassing. For some reason I expected aliens when I clicked on your post... must have been the title.
