Franklin D. Zodiac

he was anything but cute

just a scaly-green body

in a worn-out spaceman suit

He had twelve bony fingers

dubbed Heavenly Hollywood

and he could make a guitar howl

like no Earthly musician could

Franklin pick your brains out

Frankie do your thing

FDZ for president

The Cosmos Guitar King

He took the Gravity Gang

on The Zigzag Tour of Mars

it eclipsed pay-per-view ratings

on Far Out With The Stars

His debut Black Hole album

made the charts at twenty one

by month's end it had rocketed

all the way to number one


His sound they named Deep Universe

wired twelve-string to the core

his solar sea of speakers

raised a radioactive roar

Franklin pick your brains out

Frankie do your thing

FDZ for president

The Cosmos Guitar King

It’s ice cream

in the morning

Macaroni

at midnight

Frank the Alien

never sleeps

accept on satellites


It’s French fries

in the sauna

In the pool

it’s Bits and Bites

Frank the Alien

never fades

accept on red-eye flights


Frank’s Fans were everywhere

in every biosphere

if you made a distant dwarf

a Frank Freak would appear

Venus entered Frankosphere

hopped a shuttle from The Crater

started out with chirps and smiles

went telepathic later

Booze'an'drugs were not Frank's style

meteor crystals his first choice

and he’d fry Martian mushrooms

so he'd get a Human voice


Franklin pick your brains out

Frankie do your thing

FDZ for president

The Cosmos Guitar King

One time I played with Frankie

down at Sunspot on the Moon

we shared the Galactic sound stage

viewed by millions live on Zoom


Where’d solar slide originate?

he said the Milky Way

if I pass All-Terrestrial

I’m gonna orbit there some day

Franklin pick your brains out

Frankie do your thing

FDZ for president

The Cosmos Guitar King


Franklin D. Zodiac

he was anything but cute
