No Terror from Afar, but Cursed Within


I saw them coming, a mighty mad mob.

With deadlier weapons and thundering voices,
They wasted no time on their way to our home.

I stood there gazing at the sky, terror stricken & pale;
My frail heart fibrillating like a fancy toy gone weird.

So close they’d come, a millisecond more before a deadly kiss!

But they paused.

I heard them jeering at us.

“These people are killing themselves”
“And destroying their own planet, it’ll be fun to watch”
“Let’s sit back and enjoy”

And so the Earth rotated and revolved like any other day
With no terror from afar, but cursed within.
