Tin Man Alley

At Earth the Venusians take aim
and so to Chicago they came
The city, alerted
was mostly deserted
except for a good looking dame

She wanders the now vacant streets
till traveling salesman she meets
Then drunks and a killer--
Is this a noir thriller?
A robot! Hang on to your seats

Richard Denning and Kathleen Crowley star
in Target Earth (Sherman A. Rose, 1954).
Though set in Chicago, Target was shot in LA.
