Month of Mini Writing Challenges 13
September 13, 2017. The prompt is planet.
I suppose it’s not said today
Growing up in forty-eight
Weird behavior from a child
Really normal, but considered wild
Brought a parental remark
“Are you from another planet?”
Those were the days of Area 51
Under the hot Nevada sun
Meteors landing creating craters
All knew they’d be landing sooner or later
Aliens! Green, tiny and scary
With long arms that were not hairy
Who would think this might occur?
Just about all the hims and hers
Being a kid, it was all a blur
Movie producers became entrepreneurs
Barkers selling strange foil hats
Investigation by bureaucrats
Those were the days of the fifties
Not all of it was “really nifty”.
