Pride, Joy & Alien Artifacts
Has he gone away yet that Pulitzer
prize-winning reporter? I’m done with the facts.
His questions about the Galvanizer,
my pride, joy and an alien artifact–
which I won over that THING
in alien square with the Thalians–
I used the Galvanizer ONCE to bring
to its knees interplanetary aliens.
I didn’t expect much thanks, but privacy,
certainly. Reporters all want a piece
of my damn mind, or some chiromancy,
but they’ll never locate a single piece,
and I’ll never tell where my joy and pride
lies, not while I, in a spaceship, reside.

This sonnet picks up where yesterday’s Daily Prompt Sonnet left off. Check out Trick Questions & Alien Encounters for the beginning of this humorous tale of woe.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pride and Joy.”
