Rocket Man Afternoon

Afternoon upon us
Looking at today’s feats
This is my second one
And Silliness has peaked

Let me say the coffee’s cold
That’s OK it’s warm outside
The jitters are all gone
Lunch pushed breakfast aside

The Hair After*

As my hair line recedes
My anxiety does surge
With this significant hair loss
This is no trivial urge

To just shave my head
Allowing baldness to emerge
And that music you now hear
Is called the Norelco dirge

Alien Reconstruction

Welcome everybody to the introduction
Hopefully I’ll explain it all through my induction
Building a new existence through self seduction
There’s no time now for self destruction

Compiling the knowledge for instruction
Eliminating the extra work through deduction
Now it’s time to begin the inner construction
First finding all the hindering walls by deduction

Then knocking down all those obstructions
And leveling off all the reductions
Finishing my new existence by conduction
Forgetting the time of the alien abduction
