Grandiose Names for Beauty Pageants

By Elton Camp

“Miss America” is a reasonable name
Even “Miss World” is about the same

However, the name “Miss Universe”
Could be making some aliens curse

In the universe with all of that room
Humans live alone may we assume?

Into the judges minds has it entered
That all beauty isn’t human centered?

Antennae and faceted bug eyes
To some, beauty might comprise

In other races, skin that’s green
Is the most beautiful ever seen

What if along comes a female ET
And says to them, “Enter me!”

Only if she’s treated just the same
Can they claim that pompous name
