The sheriff was sitting in the locked jail cell

with the key in his pocket

chewing on cactus &

gulping down hot coffee


Some one knocked on the door of

the Sheriff’s Office

“Come in!” chortled Sheriff Isom Dart

from the safety of the cell


Another Martian.

Before the creature said anything

Dart erupted, “I’m already

registered to vote!”


The creature from Mars peered at Dart

quizically with its third eye

& beeped, “But are you going to

vote for Obama?”


“Of course I’m voting for

Obama!” cried forth the

harried lawman.  “You critters

are driving me crazy!”


The green man wrapped a tentacle around

a jail-cell bar &

peered into the gloom

at the Earthman


The Martian said, “It’s best for the galaxy, the solar system,

my planet, your planet & your nation that

President Obama

serves 4 more years in the White House”


Sheriff Dart almost said

something but didn’t

the Martian turned around

   dissolved right thru the wall…
