Ode to an AlienPaul BirtwistleSometimes I sit and wonderWhat I oughta doWhen aliens arrive and say,"Howdy-doody moo."Should I say it back or maybeSomething else instead,Like "Welcome to our land"Or maybe offer them your bed?Should I maybe laughAnd say, "I think your accent's funny,"Or maybe act all seriousAnd give them jars of hunny?Sometimes I sit and wonderWhat I oughta doWhen aliens arrive and say,"Howdy-doody moo!"

My Mother's Day gift from my 11-year-old son. You can take the Shel Silverstein away from the boy, but you can't take the Shel Silverstein out of the boy.
