Pumping Up the Local Economy
Pumping up the local economy
I attended the first
galactic symposium held on Earth
most of the meetings
took place in orbit of course
so many delegates could not stand our gravity
or our atmosphere
sometimes I feel that way myself
and wish I could go out without a mask.
But I got a vendor permit
made good money
selling odds and ends
that had been lying around the house forever.
It was hard to part with Grandma
but I couldn't take care of her properly anymore
the Squid from Rigel assured me
she would be well treated
or maybe he said pickled
I don't think his translator
was working right.
