Pg. 24 — MIND INVASION by Jill Trade


Probe me good and probe me hard!
No matter what I will not crack!
I will never let down my guard.
You’re going to have to beam me back.

You want my secrets for attack,
To put humans in a graveyard.
It’s my mind you want to ransack.
Probe me good and probe me hard.

I’ll never give the master card,
Only some negative feedback.
Keep probing me till I am scarred,
No matter what I will not crack.

I won’t bend to alien flak,
Even if I’m feathered and tarred.
You will not get me to backtrack.
I will never let down my guard.

I won’t let my planet be charred.
I’m not some treasonous wack.
You picked wrong. I’m a wild card.
You’re going to have to beam me back.

Take this UFO off it’s track.
Send this saucer to my backyard.
Fly away and do not look back
Or else I’ll even the scorecard.
Probe me good.
