Space Station!

It was supposed to be just another routine shift

on the orbiting space station

as it majestically circled the earth far below

with spectacular surface views

the astronauts within prepared for a heavy day

unaware of what was on the way!

 

Instruments indicated systems were functioning

nothing had been detected

ground control contacted to tell them an object

had been picked up on radar

approaching their position on a collision course

no idea what it was or its source!

 

What concerned them it had just suddenly appeared

to rapid for a comet or asteroid

thoughts loomed of alien activity always a possibility

plans had always been prepared

closer now communications were severed with earth

the escape pod broke from its berth!

 

The crew of eight men and women totally stranded

as the shape loomed into sight

blocking out the intense sunlight then a sudden jolt

vibration as if being drawn

towards this unidentified mass outside the thin hull

as pain filled each skull!

 

From earth’s ground control they could only listen

and view the images on monitors

revealing to them it was a spaceship of colossal size

uncertain at what could be done

if missiles were fired it could create a counter stroke

no way could they provoke!

 

Helpless the object retreated into the depths of space

yet knowing it would return

so far the situation had been censored from the media

how long could it be contained

without knowledge of what events were formulating

earth’s leaders forced into waiting!

 

But for years in secret invasion scenarios created

in anticipation of such a day

these plans were put into action military on alert

for civilisations destruction

limited information was given to the baying media

so as not to cause fear!

 

The wait for the forthcoming invasion had begun!
