Take Me To Your Leader

When the Martians came to visit, 
In their pan-galactic speeder,
I said “Oh hello, what is it?”
They said, “Take me to your leader!”

Well, I did as they suggested -
I’m a dreadful people pleaser,
But of course, they got arrested...
Cos they didn’t have a visa.

In a vile detention lock-up,
They’ve met Earthlings by the dozen,
Cos all faiths and nations pop up,
“We love Earth!” they beep, “It’s buzzing!”

While their friends in Immigration,
(Who must rue the day they caught them),
Figure out with trepidation,
How on EARTH they might deport them.
