I'm not an alien invader


Question

As starlight falls and suns all die

I'm flying in saucers unseen

Propellered guard is whizzed right by

With teleportation beam

A migrant motley columned crew

Arranged with a common intent

Starts squelching scores of voices who

Are trumped by the one I invent

My phantoms land and fight their war

The people will surely succumb

'til daylight breaks then off I soar

I'm saved or I'm killed by a thumb

Watching a movie or tv...(also, Cat's guess of playing a video game definitely fits this thinking as well...)

The first stanza kind of sounds like the lights going down and possibly a DVD in the player started by a remote control.

The second stanza seems to describe the pixels on the display and then when the movie starts, people who are talking quiet down.

The third mentions how people will be fixated at the screen and then about turning it off via remote (using your thumb)...the "saved" line is what makes me think Cat's guess is probably more right...

This reviewer gives Pickett's answer a thumbs up.

Old-fashioned movie reel

As starlight falls and suns all die

I'm flying in saucers unseen - movie reels, in the projector's booth out of sight

Propellered guard is whizzed right by - mechanism of displaying the frames on original projectors

With teleportation beam - the projected beam of light

A migrant motley columned crew

Arranged with a common intent

Starts squelching scores of voices who

Are trumped by the one I invent - fits better with a public performance than something at home

My phantoms land and fight their war

The people will surely succumb - crowd typically just sits there and watches

'til daylight breaks then off I soar

I'm saved or I'm killed by a thumb - the thumbs up or thumbs down of reviewers
