Poems for My Alien Abductors: a Ride into Space

I thought I could wow them with poems from earth Poems of joy and humor, poems extolling it’s worth So I laid out poems from Michael, Gail, and me From Andrea, David, Gwen, and Ilene From PD, Harry, Mandy, and Chris From Jack, Craig, Cyndi, and Liz… For I was sure once they read our beautiful works They would embrace us and love our humanly quirks! So last night I taped them all over my skin Knowing they’d find them if they took me again… When I woke up, they were gone and I had a reply: “We enjoyed reading those poems last night, And thanks for the names of the earthlings too - We have many more experiments to do!” 2/7/13 For Michael's boomerang...send your poem for a ride contest
