Deception in four stages

He turned his ring tone to silent
And closed his eyes
Could this finally be the peace
He ordered?

The instructions had been a little unclear
The boxes too small
To be crossed
Or whatever it was you did with such boxes

It was on the plane coming over
That he discovered his little finger
Could be bent back at the first joint
He’d always envied those with double jointed appendages
And now felt oddly included
Part of the creative set whose fingers arched back

No
Its too soon
I haven’t finished my lines, my penance
My laps
And you, somehow you already seem way ahead of me

We’ve been deceived, there are no such things as aliens…
