Bug-eyed Monsters

The United States now has the capability of flying over hostile or friendly territory and cause all signals to vanish, all screens to go dark, no facebook, no twitter, no television, no radio, replaced with whatever message the government wants you to see and hear. That used to be science fiction. No longer. We trust our government to do that only to our enemies and not to do that to us. Don’t we? 



Buggy eyed monsters and bare bosomed dames

The covers of pulp mags of yore

Screamed loudly as writers of recognized names

Caused space ships to come to our shore

Advanced as they were o’er the likes of us then

They beamed out their message en clair

And sent us their likeness so very like men

Then landed and walked down the stair

Onto the lawn of the White House no less

To bring peace and health to us all

They promised that all of mankind they would bless

And gathered us onto the Mall

Now who would’ve thought that that day it would come

When space ships would overhead fly

And make all the facebooks and twitters go dumb

While spewing the government lie
