Moon Man

When the men from the rocket

landed on the moon

they weren’t expecting

a reception committee


The locals hadn’t seen Astronauts

and invited them to tea

they looked a little different

but acted like you and me


And they helped the men collect

rocks and soil from the ground

as the bosses from earth

wanted to know – if there was life around


And after the ‘nauts had left for home

the moon people to earth would go

to learn about their next door neighbours

in their fancy UFO
