This is a prompt story--hard word to work with. Silly, but cute



    I never believed my brother
    Had been abducted
    By aliens . . . However
    After checking under his covers
    I feared it was a true   endeavor
    As brothers go, Billy was okay
    Weird and smelly, a nasty tease
    Yet blood bound us till that awful day
    Green blood-like goo caused unease
    As I searched for signs and clues
    Mom and Dad did not seem worried
    Never noticed that Billy was gone
    They went their way unhurried
    I felt so scared, lost and alone
    As if fallen into the "Twilight Zone!"
    My sad plight came to fruition
    While watching my parents in their room
    Shivering, I felt a sickening intuition
    A feeling of impending doom
    Long metal zippers lined their backs
    Before they unzipped, I retraced my tracks!
    "What lay beneath those zippers?" I thought
    The idea of aliens made me overwrought
    Oh Billy, oh bro, where did you go?
    What manner of monster has you in tow?
    Where's Mom and Dad--why was I left alone?
    Fear and terror possessed my mind
    My home overtaken by an alien kind
    Of being, not akin at all to me
    Escape, my only avenue to get free
    A familiar whistle caught my ear
    Billy often signalled me this way
    Wary, I snunk out through the rear
    Hoping, praying to find my family
    Safe and sound . . .and zipper free!
    "Psst." I  followed the sound
    To our tree house way above ground
    There they were, all three 
     Mom, Dad, Billy and now me!
    And whew!!! They were zipperless
    We lay low, as our psuedo-family
    Left our home, glancing upward
    As a whirring sound tore from the sky
    The UFO hoverd low to the ground
    The "others" unzipped their human skins
    Ugh!! Only a mother could love these beings
    Their own mothers, if they had any
    Once inside, the saucer soared
    In a nanosecond it was gone
    We hugged each other hard. "Lord,"
    Mom said, "that was so wrong.
    "Don't they know they don't belong?"
    We told no one of our invasion
    Who would have believed our altercation?
    It was a tale told only upon occassion
    As for Billy and me . . .
    Gazing up at the big and little dippers
    We vowed to ever be on guard for zippers!
