Between observers, opinions may range diversely
Concerning the strange lights and sinister abductions.
These vile visitors call with conduct so unearthly
And a purpose which defies logical deductions
Bright lights, time and memory loss, faulty radios
Their manner of travelling with wavy waywardness.
I have solved the puzzling existence of UFOs
They’re joyriding angels at the height of drunkenness
