Pick Them Up

reversed the roles
urged by this impulse
seized them when they passed
and drew them into this
series of disturbing events
the sad part of the story
is that it would be impossible
to ascertain the origin
of the craft whether it was
alien or just the reds
the truth of the matter
would remain unknown
the three references
he found of the event
in the books were
largely unconclusive
and traumas such as these
promised no gift
in fact with a childish seriousness
he interpreted it all
quite literally
to mean that he was mistaken
but in fact maybe
everybody else was mistaken
and those fucking bugmen
were in fact sending signals
to the moonmen
to come pick them up
