there is a flying saucer
a huge motherfucker
from the Planet Crouton
in galaxy triple X ten
Star Zone alpha omega delta-fy
and with ray guns enough
to destroy the city
but for some reason
and lands on the roof of
Dunkin' Donuts
and a little man crawls out
and goes inside
and asks for the key to
the restroom
but they won't give it to him
he is not a paying customer.
