Newspoem 4 April 1998

On Tuesday, March 10th of this year
The President's plane disappeared
For 24 seconds
Uncertainty beckoned:
The control tower's radar was clear.

Here is what happened that day
South of New York's JFK
An alien race
Had come from deep space
And fired a transporter ray

They'd travelled ten years in a bubble
To help out a planet in trouble
And with this strange gun
They zapped air force one
And the President, leaving his double

The President's clone from above
Announced a new policy of
Now melting the guns
And mandating fun
Legislation to spread peace and love

The President, in today's poll
Is popular and on a roll
Though this incident
With the President
Is denied by air traffic control
