One day on planet Earth,
A strange signal of alien origin was detected.
At first the signal was weak,
But year after year it increased to an undeniable peak!
An army of scientists,
Working in hundreds of labs and research institutes,
Deduced that its’ frequency modulations
Contained a message.
Massive computer networks ran countless
Permutations and computations
In the effort to translate
The alien transmission.
Six years, six months and six days later,
The message was finally decoded.
Even as it was being read,
Gigantic, intergalactic ships appeared overhead.
The message was brutally simple.
“ SURRENDER THIS PLANET.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
WE CLAIM OUR INHERITANCE.
WE ARE THE MEEK! ”
MY ONE AND ONLY SCIENCE FICTION POEM……….LET’S HOPE IT’S FICTION!
