Visitors From the Distant Past
They landed in three large pods.
“They look exactly as we envisaged,” one of them said, probing me.
“Bring him inside the pod.” Said another.
I looked around.
It seemed really simple.
“Doesn’t he look cute?” another of them said.
I didn’t say a word.
They all looked queer.
“We are visitors,” one of them told me.
“We’re coming from the past.”
“We lived here several million years ago.”
“Exactly this same spot.”
I was only three years old.
I understood them.
“Gotta run,” they said.
We have several eras to see on this short trip.”
They led me out of the pod.
