While it’s a fave of mine,
Best not let Alien watch District Nine!
Oh, and then there’s Independence Day …
Uh-uh, silly thing, nah, no way.
Yes, movies and novels are my go-to activity,
But if Alien sees certain some, we’ll all end in captivity.
Perhaps I should stick to comfort food,
Keep Alien in a happy, carefree mood.
I could take Alien to experience gentle waves brushing the shore;
Of such peace and beauty, Alien’s sure to want more.
And then there’s our gorgeous Cornish hills—
As long as we miss the open mines and smelly landfills.
Can we hide from Alien exactly what we are?
Most likely, their species has studied us from afar.
Mmm, on second thought,
To be honest, we aught.
If they have brains and hormones anything like ours,
Alien will understand we’re not all chocolate and flowers.
Intellect and emotions ensure we’re a bagful of pix-n-mix,
Of which Alien and his kind will know all the tricks.
Out of all the many joys of this world, we all crave acceptance—
To be seen and heard and avoid hate and vengeance.
So, yes indeed, I’ll show Alien the most important thing …
Kindness and an open heart, regardless of origin or linguistic string.
