Alien Concern

Alien Concern
by Ted L Glines

We saw an alien ship above us high,
it came so fast and then it streaked away,
we couldn't hope to catch it now today,
our watchers always scan the nighttime sky,
in hopes to catch a saucer passing by,
but never do the aliens pause or stay,

[Hata Bildir]
