YunLin Jr High Lucia: Frightened, Sky, Secret
There's something high up in the sky
I saw it flashing by my eye
And then it soared into the clouds
Its shouted hums, its muffled louds.
I'm frightened, dear; what can it be
That's sneaking there on top of me?
Is it a drone? A bird? A bomb?
Will I be soon inside my tomb?
I always fear that outer space
Will be my final resting-place
And I'll be mounted on a card
Inside some alien's backyard
A specimen of foolish Earth
A source of spacemen's frothy mirth.
What secret lurks behind the nimbus?
I hope they're not here to de-limb us
Oh! It's back! Quick, nurses, run!
They're here for sport, to have some fun
At our expense! Oh my, wait up
There's something fishy...pass the cup
Of coffee, Phil! That's just Maurice;
He's stuffed my mattress full of geese!
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
