Category: Alien life. We always picture aliens invading our planet, but what do they do when they are not pillaging other worlds? Build us a scene showing what aliens might do at home. Are they busy mowing the snarglaf or painting the floogflarm or FINALLY fixing the nergtranser?
It was pure white outside. Confined to our little house from the frigid breath of ice and snow, there was little we could do besides enjoy each others company. The storm disabled the cable, and the pie was almost gone. It was time. I paced towards the bookshelf and withdrew a dusty book, a book given to me by my father in 2104. He had read it to me on days such as these, and I would continue the tradition by reading it to my son. "Alien Adventures:....
"Now some of you may think
That an alien's life stinks.
They go to war
And get sort of sore.
But this is NOT the case as I will show!
To many vacation destinations they go!
See, war is their job just as work is ours.
So when not at war, they travel hours and hours!
But what do they do on vacation?
After all, vacation is not just migration!
This is what I will show.
To a few alien adventures, we will go...."
"Some aliens are fast and smart.
They enjoy hunting in the dark!
But they must be careful!
Danger is near!
Look out for the Governator
Covered in mud and fear!"
"Some aliens get nervous and sad.
They are so far away from mom and dad!
So they pick up the phone and spin the dial
And talk to their parents at home for a while!"
"Some aliens want a little excitement.
They like to take a risk, as long as it doesn't end in an indictment!
Why not try something new, something cool?
Looks like the aliens aren't the only ones who drool...."
"Some aliens like to let off some steam.
How about a game of holochess?
Chewbacca reigns supreme!
Just step right up and try your luck!
Let the Wookiee win."
While some aliens are fast and others are sad
Some aliens are just busy and mad!
They have to work and work all day long.
No one helps them out. No one sings them a song.
These aliens have kids to take care of too!
That's why they hire babysitters like me and YOU!!!"
"How's your stomach feel now?"
And so ended that warm little day in that cozy little house. I tucked my son in bed and said "Good night! Don't let the xenomorphs bite!"
If any of you (especially the judges) don't get any of these scenes, PLEASE let me know so I can explain them to you. They shouldn't be hard to understand if you've seen or are familiar with the movies: "Predator", "ET", "District 9","Star Wars", and "Alien." But if you aren't, again, please let me know!
Very clever! A great poem, and the builds and scenes are phenomenal. Only problem is Matt rowntRee- His comment may consist of multiple outbursts of CHEWIE and ALL HAIL THE SUPERIOR WOOKIE and what not. ;D
I got all the references, that District 9 one was probably my favorite just because they are jsut not as classic as the others and it took a bit to figure out. Nice building. One thing though, the Star Wars game is called Dejarik. But you know, it's cool.
