Oh, hey, Mr. Grey,

nice deathray,

before you kill us all,

I'd just like to say,

there's a cool display

up in Monterey

with fish that play

and splash and spray.

We should go today

if that's okay?

This isn't a way-

to delay.

I know you want to get things underway,

Just

wait

until

you

see

the

bay.

*

Hold on a sec,

please redirect-

those lasers pointed at my neck!

You have my respect.

No need to suspect.

I merely want to double-check

you haven't failed-

to inspect-

our

planet

be-fore

it

gets

wrecked.

*

Do you wanna ride,

in a car that glides

as it moves around on a great, big slide?

Just be-aware there are dolls inside

who sing together like a haunting guide.

Creepy? Yeah, but all jokes aside,

This park is known- nationwide,

An attraction that tends to be vied,

So

let’s

be

quick

and

beat

the

line.

*

Ever seen a knight,

who has to fight

atop a horse running in full flight?

They might try to bite,

there’s no good light,

and the acting is an awful fright.

But it's quite alright.

Worth the sight.

You

have

to

see

the

show

tonight.

*

Oh, here’s a thought

I know a spot

A venue that is highly sought

Worry naught,

my plan is taut,

We might get caught

But It’s worth a shot!

We’ll take a yacht

To Bharat

and

have

some

fun

until

we’re

not.

*

Do you like romance?

Let’s go to France.

There’s a tower there that can enhance

a date if you schedule in advance.

But

only

if

you

do

a

dance.

*

Oh, you need to eat?

Well, do you like meat?

-Gives a wink-

You’re in for a treat.

I know a street

that can't be beat.

they're

known

to

sell

the

fresh-est

feet.

*

Wait! Please don't go,

on your UFO,

give us a chance to say hello.

We welcome you-

with a great, hit show,

performed

by

Joe

on

a

big

plateau.

*

Alright, adios!

Whew, that was close,

we were seconds away from being toast.

It was quite the hoax

Glad I didn't choke.

Until

next

time

that

is

all

folks!

    I love this take on the challenge 😁 A novel way to avert disaster, and I like the rhyming pattern 😁
