He wrote a big sign pointed to the sky
Aimed at space ships just passing by;
All Alien life forms catered for, it said,
Full English B& B with King Sized Bed.
He didn't think about it any more
Until the slosh came at his door.
Standing there with a large suit case
A column of water with a vague face,
Which sort of said in a rippling way
Is the bed still vacant just now today?
Full English breakfast would be so good
Four sausages please and some black pud.
He tried so hard and did his best
And he passed some form of test;
Only an official from Galaxy Northern HQ
Who just happened to be passing through!
He got Five Stars and One Anchor rating
With special mention of the catering.
He can charge astronomical rates
To that official and all its mates
Who tend to drop in from the sky
When they happen to be passing by.
His story doesn't just end here:
Galactic Entrepreneur of the Year,
He's opened up a brand new place
Just on the fringes of outer space,
Which won Nine Stars for being so cool
For providing Chess and Eight Ball pool
With special facilities for those not able
To properly stand and reach the table
And something really very new
A fully adjustable billiard cue
So much better than the norm
For adjusting to Alien Life Form.
Here endeth this tale on such notes of joy
Concerning success of made good local boy
