What is always interesting about these alien ships that land
Concerns the choice of landing sites by the aliens in command.
These people, always brilliant, sometimes short and fat an'
Seldom tall and slender, never land their ships in Manhattan.
They're always landing saucers 100 miles from Albuquerque
In the middle of some desert land for reasons only murky.
If they really want to observe us; to test us in our mettle,
Why choose such peculiar landing sites? A query we must settle!
Instead of driving their spaceships into some desert ditch
Why not park on Manhattan's East Side? Buy a pastrami sandwich
And observe our civilization, as it truly exists....in Times Square,
To judge us by New Mexican standards really isn't fair.
Once they landed in a Soviet city, the outskirts of Voronezh;
The whole thing witnessed by many. That's what in Tass it says.
If they had chosen Moscow, the event would've had more sock.
What did they do in Voronezh? They left a rather large piece of rock?
One wonders if they found that rock somewhere in Wyoming.
That they picked up as they merrily around our planet go roaming.
A similar finding would give the folks in Montpelier, Vt. a shock.
Imagine finding a boulder at City Hall, that had come from Vladivostok.
At least someone else is spotting these UFO ships now.
Maybe someone in the Russian Republic can figure out the how
And why some theories go up in smoke, while probing queries sour,
Like, why do they land at 3 a.m. and never during rush hour?
