Poem - Aliens on a Monday

Updated on December 30, 2012
Aleister Crowley's Lam from around 1918..
Aleister Crowley's Lam from around 1918..

.

the alien looked irritated

as he got out of the ugly saucer

and strode towards me

..a lot of subjective decisions

in those 3 seconds

stay fight run hide wait

a little like life..

I suppose it was the snail again

will I ever be free of that encounter

with Ras-qulina-factol-fortobi

anyway I tightened my grip on the spade and thought

alien meets Irish diplomacy

after that then we’ll talk..

as luck would have it

they landed in a xenophobic part of the country

and a Monday – like aliens on a Monday.. hello

who can handle that

are there weekends in space I wondered

or is the whole concept overrated

..

      Thanks Christin, agreed Monday is definitely not an alien day but inevitably that is what will happen ;-)

      Very interesting poem. As soon as I saw the word Alien I had to read this I'm still waiting to meet one but preferably not on a Monday :)
