THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD



THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD,
invaders from the planet Aynrandia,
creepy-looking beings caucusing in Congress,
creatures transmitted to earth via FOX News Channel,
draining the life blood of the lower-bracket earthlings—
Have we become a hapless country of hostages?
Has Stockholm syndrome tentacled us
into believing our only future lies in our past?
THE THING cannot be reasoned with, so why, oh why
does the gentle scientist keep trying?
Who can come and zap
THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD?
