Alien, The Beautiful

A science fiction poem 👽

Follow me to this lab.

But first, you’ll need to take this jab.

Put on this mask and pair of gloves.

Fair warning, humans lost touch

with love and lack appreciation.

By the way, a man died of asphyxiation

when your UFO alighted.

His scream guided me,

and that’s how we collided.

Hurry!

Get in here, quick!

Remember to duck, if

you see a brick.

Oh my!

You’re an alien chick!

Is that lipstick, or are your

lips naturally green?

Is everyone back home so lean?

Anyway, there’s something

you must see.

There’s no room for people

like you and me.

Step behind this line.

I need to scan your body

for its alkaline levels

and determine the color of

blood flowing through your vessels.

I’d like to confess that

I wear a mask too.

Mine just can’t be removed.

In this lab, we build superior

artificial intelligence.

An alien is the final element…

Wait…

That’s so wrong.

I won’t allow them to use you

as a pawn in their sick, twisted games.

I’ll hide you inside of my bunker instead;

I have so many questions

swimming laps in my head.

Hit the bong and teach me

an out of this world lesson.

Do aliens have a profession?

You’re free to leave

whenever you please—

You’re not my possession.

Just wanted to show you

that not all humans suck.

I wish you the best of luck…
