Final Instructions to 7009856342- 00XTR -7492: "Fred"

 

There’s no urgent need to have any ideas

before speaking, since humans usually speak

just to say something, to be social.

 

Fact: they simply can’t stand around the place

silent, grinning like baboons, they can’t.

 

Dress well. Attend to personal hygiene.

Smile slowly, make your eyeballs sparkle.

Memorize a set of stock phrases.

There’s nothing to it.

 

The politicians these days, my God.

I adore your dress.

Yes, c’est la meme chose, don't you know.

It’s all (touch your nose) wheels within wheels.

Taxes are killing the business world.

 

That should get you through.

 

Move in the right circles.

Charm both sexes, avoid physical intimacy.

Marry the smiling clone we send you.

Spread around the money we give you.

Never put yourself forward for office,

in time they will ask you, beg you.

 

A Minister in the UK?

A Senator in the USA?

 

A Senator costs more,

admittedly, but once you’re in you’re in.

The best part of the Senate is you can

obstruct everything, never having

to say much, not a single word.

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

I, too, love the first line, especially how you use the serial number. Your use of the quote box is clever, too. This one's top shelf.

The most what I wonder is, how you come up with such an ideas like this one? All is great, as the others said, the quote box, the serial number... Ded, you are always so creative and with many unique ideas, that is for greeting.

 

Otherwise the poem is wonderful, very wise, very open, and very real story. I love your way of writing, even it knows to be so hard sometimes, but never boring. Keep writing.

Well this explains everything. You are an alien and have been beamed down with your superior talent and knowledge to observe we inferior earthlings more closely. It took me a while to figure it out, that shows just how stupid we earthlings are.

 

Since your true identity has finally been revealed, I am wondering if you have any poems I could use for my articles on alien verse.... Bagarthach Verse or puSlohVagh. It takes a good sense of humor to write these things.
