'Aliens'....Mostly...

My right hand, clawed on arm rest starts to cramp
I dare not loose this 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 invest
.......she flambes eggs with amazonic zest
.........then plucks the girl before she is digest
...........finesses Queen in battle breast to breast
.............and leaves us high on cinematic crest!

But wait, we're told, it seems Newt WAS infest
Bad luck, she's dead, they said, in 'Alien 3'.

    Darn, I didn't remember that from 3. 2 WAS the best!

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

    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.

    Scared the milk off my whiskers.

    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!
