THE BOY WHO CRIED ALIEN
A sleepy town
A quiet lake
A boy sees the crash landing. Not just any boy. Larry the Liar.
I told my friends that Dad’s a secret agent guy
out searching for the lost world of Atlantis.
That Mom was bitten by a bat and thinks she’ll fly.
Her favorite foods are moth and praying mantis.
I told my class that Bigfoot’s prowling ’round the school.
He really likes to shower in the gym.
The reason why he won’t bathe in the swimming pool
is ’cause a whale arrived ahead of him.
And now a spaceship’s landed in Malarkey Lake.
It looks just like a giant gold-capped tooth.
It’s over there and I can swear it’s not a fake.
What could I say that’s stranger than the truth?
As Larry watches, a pair of unhappy aliens emerge from their ship…
Tapuk tocker, on eorm sag.
Yo yev! Thoos em won
nhew eh kooks ni eht earagg,
Pop lilw eavh a zon.
