This is another of my NaNoWriMo creations which I think fits the theme perfectly, hope you enjoy it.
Star-flight spaceships scour the skies
above the planet’s beady eyes.
A new home they seek
they’ve been searching and searching for nearly a week.
Their multicoloured coats
to keep them warm as on they float.
Looking for somewhere warm and cosy
so they can be happy where life is rosy.
Comets shoot past them lighting their way
as they reach for their maps day after day.
They’re getting so hungry and right in the mood
for a delicious planet littered with food.
Not too big and not too small
for these cute little aliens who are not too tall.
A family gathered all on one ship
with many a squeak from the youngest pip.
All huddled together in their futuristic lounge
overrun my metal mice that scrape and scrounge.
There’s a techno wiz who’s often the rebooter
of their venerable valuable vintage computer.
The oldest of them is the designated driver
who navigates through all the hassle and mither.
They stop all the time for great adventures
meet all sorts of creatures even some who wear dentures.
The bumpy headed warlords are the worst of the lot
awakening the little one fast asleep in the cot.
There are blue faces, green faces and all sorts of colours
the quiet, reserved and the pushers and pullers.
They appear on the screen and state their agenda
some even look like they’ve been in a blender.
But judge on appearances our family do not
visitors are welcomed and aboard they trot.
With strutting and stature they whip out their phaser
only to be met with a bloody big laser.
To be given a home they must keep the peace
or little miss captain will rip up the lease.
Speeding through the stars until they are able
to find fresh food to put on the table.
Scouring the galaxies where discoveries are made
stars shine bright and some do fade.
The assistant captain is such a big actor
when he spots the plough and thinks it’s a tractor.
They connect up the stars to form a big bear
around the window they gather to have a good stare.
Eventually they spot something on the horizon
a blue and green planet that’s particularly surprising.
In they fly for a closer look
the captain makes notes in her special book.
To their delight this planet is manned
they have questions and menus already planned.
Slowly and carefully they make their descent
gathering alien money to pay all the rent.
Politely they always start off their mission
so run quickly to greet the first politician.
Filled with joy and gleeful mirth
hello new visitors, welcome to Earth.
