Pg. 35 — ‘SQUATCHES IN SAUCERS by Richard Stevenson


‘Squatches in saucers
dropped off near Boston
C’mon! That’s gotta
be a fearsome critter tale –
Who’d bought ‘er in Boston?

Yet squatches did beam up!
I saw ‘em with my own peeps!
Probably thought
Beam me up, Scotty. There’s no
intelligent life down here.

He’d a been right too
I reckon this ‘squatch
was some kinda Chewbaca
Greys’ paid flatfoot flunky
on recognizance duty.

Checkin’ on the hominids,
maybe got in some fishin’.
Let us think he’s
the primordial primate
knucklin’ it in the tuliewumps.

Gig’s up, ‘squatch baby!
I saw you beam aboard!
I got your number!
Bigfoot’s got a big brain!
Bigfoot’s got a big brain!
