Lesson Learned

Sometimes you just gotta listen, especially when it comes to aliens.

Top Story - September 2023

I met a cute guy in a bar.

We began to make out in my car.

When I felt between us,

his tiny green penis,

I laughed till I puked in a jar.


I heard there were aliens in town.

I ignored all the warnings they'd sound.

Fed up with the strife,

I went out for the night,

to have fun and perhaps drink a round.


I prob should have listened from the start,

to the folks who said "take this to heart."

Because now I'm drove crazy,

with ten snot-colored babies,

and I don't even have time to fart.


forgot to mention image was created on Dall-E

    Haha, each line made the world and voice even sharper and more hilarious. Love that you took this premise and crafted a plot that, honestly, I really want to read in story-form! Give us more of this lady and her alien kids and maybe her vendetta? Awesome poem!

    Well, You may have laughed at his tools, but it seems that You must've got more than handsy with them, cause You fixed Yourself into a rather precarious situation. Hopefully it brings peace between worlds, and maybe childsupport too. Lowkey, Gerald must be ecstatic to be an Uncle to ten new nieces and nephews, though they might not be nieces and nephews in our binary sense of when it comes to biology.
