Ode to Atomic Starburst


An atomic starburst flying saucer was seen today, slowly spinning in the skies over Richland, WA about 10:00 am. Said saucer looked to be round with indentations on either side and on the roof. Paintings of blue and green atomic nuclei with their electrons in orbit around them, adorned the top of the contraption. It was reported that the saucer looked very old, about the type that was seen in the 1950's or 60's. Experts say the saucer showed a few tiny defects on the ceiling, but, on the other hand, it was rather amazing that it was in such good condition for its age. No other saucers were spotted, not even in that well known scientific reference work, E-bay.

The saucer was cleverly disguised in a brown cardboard box with Fed Ex labels on it. It carefully landed on a front porch at 1926 Pine St in Richland. Residents contacted at that address refused to comment on the suspicious item, but were heard mumbling, "Kerry and her Americana kitsch...." It was noted that this was probably a code to the occupants of the space ship. The Dept. of Homeland Security has been notified and is expected to cordon off the north Richland area at any moment (or maybe in four or five days)............

A birthday poem

A little something to use
Where ever you roam
Perhaps you'll need gas for
The motor home

Or maybe groceries will be
In your cart
When you stop one day
At Camp Wal Mart

If Canada is on both your minds
Use it to camp at a spa in the pines

Or if you find yourselves out
Montana way
You might need a snack where the
Antelopes play

But where ever you wander,
Where ever you park
Come home to us safely at
The end of your lark!
