The Evil Void

There were these space-dudes way, way out in space,

wearing mighty-queer looks upon their face-

es; see, they couldn’t believe the sight they were seeing;

In their pants, several were peeing,

for outside their window, an alien was floating,

who seemed to be taunting, who seemed to be gloating

over the fact he/she was living where there was no air;

that they’d stumbled upon him/her out in his/her lair

The space-dudes where trying to figure out what the damn thing was

that they where observing, and there was quite a buzz

between them, for in their spaceship, they had air to breath,

but out there, where there was none, what did they see?

A floating, laughing nightmare, which looked all messed

up.He/she looked like an octopus with wings;


was high.Then they saw the thing raise its arms and point

What the space-dudes did next, well, they did anoint

him, ‘One Alien Bastard’, then they all flipped him the bone

Yes, they all returned his with a gesture with their own,

you know, the old single-digit salute

The enraged alien didn’t find that very cute

He/she didn’t know for sure what that meant,

but figured it was their way of saying, “go get bent!”

So he/she punched their ship, which caused a big hole,

and just for fun, bashed it to pieces, with a big-ass pole

he/she kept on him/her for a little protection

Back on Earth, upon further reflection,

the powers-that-be decided it wouldn’t be wise

to send out another space ship, with some more guys,

for, this alien proved to have an anger management problem

If they were all this unfriendly, well, “Screw them!”
