ADVENT HORIZON
‘Stay on the map,’ my Mum said
She never lets me go far
‘Make sure you stay in this galaxy
Don’t go searching for stars.’
‘Don’t speak to any aliens
Or you won’t be a boy, you’ll be lunch.
Don’t land on any white dwarf suns
I can’t have you burned to a crunch’
‘And NEVER go near a black hole
I want you to stay kiddy-shaped
Not stretched and pulled out like a sausage
As thin as a piece of tape.’
So why didn’t I take any notice?
Why was I sure Mum was wrong?
If only I’d done what my mum said
I wouldn’t be twenty miles long!
 
 
SOMETHING HORRIBLE
When a full moon, a starry sky
And a dark night
Come together
Something moves in the garden
Something watches
Something waits
When a full moon, a starry sky
And a dark night
Come together
Don’t go anywhere near the garden
The Something Horrible
Is awake
 
AUNTIE ETHEL THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL
But she’s got heat-ray eyes.
Oh, that’s just her glasses,
Nothing to worry about.
But she’s got purple teeth.
Oh, that’s just her lipstick,
Nothing to worry about.
But she’s got slimy green skin.
Oh, that’s just her make up,
Nothing to worry about.
But she’s got six antennae
sticking out of her head.
Oh, that’s just her hair-do,
Nothing to worry about.
But she’s got five arms.
Six actually. Now hurry up.
Auntie Ethel will eat us if we’re late.
 
WATCH OUT!
The Earth was peaceful
All was quiet
Until the Martians landed
They looked around
For humans
‘Take us to your leader,’
They demanded
So I took them to my mother
And she cooked them in a stew
So if you’re thinking about invading
Watch out!
It could happen to you.
 
OUR GHOST
I’m doing my maths homework
And my ruler vanishes
It was here two minutes ago
But now it’s gone.
OK I say to the ghost
Very, very funny
Now give it back
And it appears.
I go downstairs
To get my bar of chocolate
Surprise, surprise
It’s vanished.
This time it wasn’t the ghost.
My dad ate it.
 
BLACK HOLES
Black holes are very big
Black holes are very black
Black holes can suck you in
But how does anyone know?
If a black hole came my way
I wouldn’t run, I wouldn’t hide
I’d simply chuck my homework in
For how would anyone know?
