The Alien ate my Homework

Last night I stayed awake
with work I got from school
maths and science and history
I had to do them all.

A loud noise at my window
called me from my bed
I looked out and looking back at me
was a bright green alien head

He was sitting on a saucer
that glowed flourecent red
when I opened up my window
he floated to my bed.

He saw my books and written work
his actions very quick
as one by one he ate them all
I stood there feeling sick.

When he finished off my written work
he left just one small trace
as evidence he'd eaten it
the ink stains on his face

The Alien burped his thanks at me
then floated back outside
his saucer glowed a bright pea green
as the Alien went inside.

No one believes my story
they say it's some excuse
for not turning in my schoolwork
they give me some abuse.

But when I look up in the sky
I know that out in space
somewhere there's an Alien
with my Homework on his face.

Love the poem, David. I, as a teacher, would not like those aliens. Never got the alien excuse. Several "The dog ate it" instances, and one, "A rat ate it." That last one however, proved to be true.

I started teaching at the night high school in '94. When this film came out, our principal took all 25 of us (the entire faculty) to see it, and charged the cost of our tickets to the school district, calling it "faculty in-service."


The first year we opened, 20% of our kids passed the state exams. The second year, 80% passed - the same as the district average.

I totally identify with Pfeiffer's character. Had almost that same discussion re "you are not a victim."

But it's still a cool poem, David.
