Here's a little one I like, remembered (possibly not 100% accurately)from some Australian magazine many years ago. Haven't managed to trace the author. The original may still be copyright:
'Close Encounter' by Carole Wilkins
You are a different man, Henry,
Since you returned from the UFO.
The neighbours are beginning to talk.
That zippered space-suit has got to go!
That fixed smile has got to change, Henry,
And the wild loud laughter in the night.
And as for locking your room all day,
Do you really think that is right?
What are those maps on the floor, Henry?
They look pretty silly to me.
Whoever heard of a place called Xal
With a green sky and an orange sea?
Who’s that knocking at the door, Henry?
So very late – nearly half past two.
Why would a young girl in silver boots
Be wanting to speak to you?
