415 – Invasion Force Alpha

Poem number 415

.

Invasion Force Alpha

.

They arrive. Hidden in rainclouds. Engines off

And coasting. Malevolent driftwood

On the shore of the Earth.

.

Thousands of them. Evenly spaced. Equidistant

Weapons trained down. Interlocking fields of fire.

Angles. Trigonometry. Death.

.

Commands are given. Action Stations. Soldiers stand

Ready to fire. Invasion Force Alpha.

The colonists to follow.

.

It begins. Unbearable light. Unending silence

The drawn in breath before the scream

And then chaos.

.

It ends. A planet scrubbed of life. Ready

Willing and empty. The ships descend.

And new lives begin.
