The Extra-Terrestrial

 


The Extra-Terrestrial,
Or E.T., as he's called,
Is winning hearts over the Earth.
His only wish
Is to get back to space:
The only place he can call home.
I wish him luck,
That little E.T.,
In all that e'er he does.
Come back one day,
My little E.T.,
Come back and be my friend.

This wee guy was ubiquitous when I was a yoof.
He was all over my school books (free glow in dark stickers thanks to my cereal).
He was used for advertising everything too.
Only the other night I was compelled to watch a video about how ET the ATARI game killed the TV game industry.
Great to see this Debbie Barry.
