'Aliens'....Mostly...


My right hand on the arm rest starts to cramp
I daren't release the tether lest I leap
My left hand shields my eyes, a trembling clamp
A millimetre gap affords a peep.

And so I watch as Ripley finds the nest
(this scene's the best, you're free to disagree)

…to rescue Newt, her suicidal quest
….in whom the viewers have their hearts invested
…..Ripley flambés alien eggs with zest
……then plucks the girl before she is digested
…….checks the Queen in battle breast to breast
……..and leaves us on a cinematic crest!

But six years on, we're told Newt WAS infested;
Why did we bother seeing ‘Alien 3'?

    Most alien of you. Was newt infest! Or Newt to old to reinvest? Maybe not as cute or mute as in original quest. (Report) Reply

    This is good but for all of that who survived, the boom'n cat! Then when left along, long time on Red Dwarf what into a homonid did morph, the bleedin' cat of corf! The moral here may be stodgy but in survival time it'll be the moggy. So when at some time, into space we go, put a crew of cats on Nostromo.

    You have an endearing touch with everything you write. You just gotta love sci-fi! I knew I wasn't the only one
    who employed the 'peaking-between-the-third-and-fourth-fingers! (Report) Reply

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
