Illustration by Teresa Tunaley Never complain about long lines
at the gas pump
caused by billion-gallon spaceships.

Reality shows
are not in vogue
beyond the Kuiper Belt.

is perfectly normal.
Don't scratch in public.

speak English."

Remember the Beings
prefer their pets on short leashes
to those roaming wild and free.
