Well, I guess humor was not the trigger that I was hoping for. So, off we go on another tangent. Let’s see where this will take us.

Have a fantastic Friday,



 The aliens touched down,

many years ago.

And from where they came,

the people did not know.

 They arrived in strange craft,

the like, the people knew not.

With the thunder in sticks,

and other wonders, they brought.


Their appearance to the people,

was strange, say the least.

Similar, yet different,

not they, but not beast.

 They knew nothing of the people,

though some, tried to learn.

While others content,

to raze and to burn.


The end for the people,

was coming their way.

And it came with the aliens,

from the very first day.

 It came in their numbers,

it came on their breath.

The end of the people,

the beginning of death.


Ages have passed now,

and the aliens, still here.

Now, they are the people,

and other aliens, they fear.

 Forward to backward,

history will show,

when the alien arrives,

the people, soon go.
