Adam's Alien Friend

My best friend Sarah
Is an alien
But she looks just like you and me.
She hasn't got three eyes, webbed feet
Or green skin -
She appears as human as can be.
She can't suck out your brains
Or read your mind.
She prefers to suck sweets and read books.
She doesn't have a laser gun, a space ship or six arms
And she doesn't have teeth like hooks.
In fact, the only reason I know she is an alien
Is because she likes playing football and getting muddy.
