Come Get Me
I stare into the air to see
if aliens are watching me
and hope that as they’re zooming by
they’ll plummet from the sapphire sky
then slurp me up into their ship
and take me on a stellar trip
beyond the beaming moon and Mars
into the sea of gleaming stars
across the universe and space
until, at last, we find a place
away from here, so far away…
instead of stinking school today.
Thursdays are Dog Days!
