Met an outer space alien Lucy.
She tasted a strawberry smoothie.
Someone spiked the cold drink.
Lucy turned a bright pink
causing her to be rather woozy.

Writer's notes: My Limerick was written for the Extraterrestrial Challenge.
Write a rhyming poem about the first thing you would introduce to an alien on Earth.
Imagine: an alien has just landed on Earth for the first time. They're curious, wide-eyed*, and eager to learn about our world. Your mission is to introduce them to one thing that, to you, embodies the beauty, wonder, or quirks of our planet. Let your poem convey the momentousness or humor of this first introduction. Do you take them to Mardi Gras, make them watch your favorite sitcom, or share a slice of pizza? Whatever you choose, put your heart into it, have some fun, and be sure to make it rhyme!
*Editor's Note: We do not know if they have eyes.
In order for your submission to qualify, it must:
Rhyme. You can employ any rhyme scheme of your choosing.
Be submitted to the Poets community. Choosing a community is a final step in the submission process. Your poem may be rejected for word count requirements if it is submitted to any other community.
In case you don't know, my mornings typically start out with a smoothie. When meeting an extraterrestrial, I would definitely introduce them to my breakfast treat. Then, I went a little whimsical with the Limerick. This was fun! Hope you enjoyed my GROOVY TUESDAY!
Thank you for reading! You are appreciated.
