You may speak of the awful dark black holes in space,
And the grip of their terrible suction.
You may sing of a nova burning flesh from your face
And the Big Bang's incredible ruction.
You may swoon about starlight and flinch from the glare
You may shake at the scope of the Great Everywhere
But the one thing that surely will raise up your hair
Is the prospect of alien abduction.

For surely a real man would rather eat space
Or die in a sun's boiling suction
OR be torn inside out by the vacuum, erased
By a sun-flares amazing induction.
Oh, he'd rather be torched by a comet in passing
Or boiled by far Venus' torrid out-gassing
Than think of the fate of his poor human ass in
The event of an alien abduction.
