Pg. 53 — ALIEN SPECIES by Brian Lebansky


Grays with black almond eyes are the most well known
Zeta Reticuli is what they call home

Hopkinsville Goblins left a green glowing stain
Farmers shot at them again and again

Little Green Men with their gremlin acts
Sitting on an airplane wing, doing hacks

Nordic aliens save us from ourselves
Worried about our atom splitting delves

Reptilian Naga see a blue gem
Instead of destruction, give it to them

Rods or skyfish are exposed light trails
Photographs will show their very long tails

Ancient aliens made us in test tubes
Hunting-gathering to them seemed so crude

Cryptozoology shows us a few
Loch Ness, Yeti, Chupacabra aren’t new

Brian teaches science and enjoys playing music and writing songs. He has written fan fiction for his YouTube channel and wrote some poetry while in college, but lately haiku and scifaiku have been keeping him busy and entertained. While a doctoral student at Texas A&M University, Brian separated a protein (acid phosphatase) from the thousands of other proteins in the cells, chemically characterized it and published the results. Work has appeared in The Starlight SciFaiku Review.
