parallel universe

parallel universe
brand new
same old same old

drive by the dump
my chauffeur’s predecessor
waves a metal arm

raised by Zobians
bullied at school
for only having one head

planet with six moons
only been here three weeks
already have a favorite

robot warfare –
a corresponding rise
in sales of death metal
