An AI Creation By The Author

Another piece of silliness for the Vocal Extraterrestrial Challenge that you can read about here

The Prompt

Write a rhyming poem about the first thing you would introduce to an alien on Earth.

The music is "Silver Machine" by Hawkwind


An Alien Landed In My Back Garden

Their English Was Good, They Asked For Some Culture

I Showed Them My First Book, Said Is It Hard, Man?

I Said It's Quite Easy, They Said Indulge Us

The Alien Perused All Of The Pages

They Said This Is Twisted, Your Mind Is So Dark

I Said To Read This Will Never Take Ages

Here's Some Beautiful Poetry, I Remarked

The Alien Looked At The Book And Then Smiled

This Is A Beauty, Will You Let Me Keep It?

Of Course, Take It And Read, You Bibliophile

The Alien Left In His Silver Rocket

    Clever and well-done, Mike! πŸ€— I love this take!

  • Huh, who knew they love to read, lol! This was fantastic!

  • To paraphrase Mae West, "Is that a rocket in your pocket or are you just happy to see me." Alien's response: "No ma'am, it's a book I'm wanting to read. My rocket's over there. (And I could hardly fit it in my pocket.)" Aliens are still somewhat naive when it comes to our more randy genres of humor. (See what I did there?)
