The Day the Earth Stood Still
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009

 

The day the Earth stood still
A day that the world won't recall
The day the Earth stood still
A day that changed it all

A day the alien descended
And told us how we should live
We never fully comprehended
The wisdom he tried to give

The day the Earth stood still
It stood still for just one day
The alien he came to visit
And then he flew away

He flew away in his spaceship
That travelled as fast as the light
He flew away in his grey spaceship
One night
