OI! People of Earth!
by Gareth Lyn Powell
We come plenty long distance
in angry fighting ship.
You give us all your stuff
and maybe we not kick your necks off.
you look here.
We bring some serious weapons, and
the technology to mess you up nasty.
You want we should show you?
You want to name a city?
