A Long Fall From Zaneljiton

Poem By Aiden Bird

We chose to live here; but something, from far, far away, from the planet Zaneljiton; has fallen from the depths of space into a busy town of outback Queensland called Birdsville. This thing is not human, at least not completely, her name is Lucy. She is not very happy with our planet’s gravity pulling her UFO down here. She is going to do anything to get back to where she came from, even if that means termination of humans; and she has a special way of killing things. The only people who are going to find that out; are the ones who screw with her.

The First Thing You Need To Know

The first thing you need to know, is that I don’t like you!
You smell like dirty socks.
You smoke after school, and think that chewing gum will mask that stale scent that you exhale.

Dante Encounters An Everyday Dumbass

The crime is: somebody steals his bed
They climb in through the window while he is asleep

My Dream Car

My dream car would be a 2nd gen’ 2.5L Subaru Impreza WRX; the 2002 model to be exact. Manual, because it would be more fun to drive and easier to race with at tracks. I would have the 2-door Coupe, not the hatch-back or 4-door sedan. I would put a dirty big exhaust pipe on it. Have it the colour red, and give it a nice new body kit. Get reasonably low profile wheels on it, but not to low, because I don’t want to have to replace them every time I hit a pot-hole. I would not lower the suspension. This is because I still want to be able to drive over speed bumps, and the ones in Brisbane are fairly steep. The reason I would want a 2nd gen Impreza WRX is because they look and sound way better than the newest models.

I want the 2.5L engine because of the extra grunt. And a bigger engine means a deeper sound. WRX basically means it is turbo and that it will thrash any other standard Impreza. Subaru is a rally bred so that means you can expect that it has good performance has good grip on and off-road. The rear of the new Imprezas remind me of Hyundai, (which I’m not to keen on) . My model of Impreza though has nice big pronounced rear lights that look boss. Now talking about interior. I would install racing style seats that would cup your body, so you won’t slide around inside the cabin when cornering. And get racing style metal pedals. I would upgrade the engine so it is only ‘just legal’. I say this, because you can hot it up too much and it won’t be road worthy, because then it would be like a race car. Which is what WRX are used for in rally competitions.

A Sharp Turn To The Worst

I am sitting here on the thin grass which lies on the compacted dirt. Under the shade of a tree, the light cool breeze blows on my face and through my light cotton shirt. The grass dances to the breeze. My legs are crossed, I feel the soles of my leather shoes dig into the sides of my legs; but it doesn’t matter, because of the pleasant distractions.
