From the bomb crater the beast was released
the massive explosion scattered
shrapnel and debris outwards at high velocity
and downward deep in the ground
penetrating a long hidden uncharted cave
a hole exposed by the shock wave!
With the evacuation and devastation it came
nobody knew of the presence
from below the alien creature had emerged
from long confinement
awoken after thousand of centuries trapped
to the atmosphere hard to adapt!
Unlike all the earthbound humanoid species
this being was not carbon based
nor in a solid form looking like a dark mist
blending in with the surroundings
because of our gravity needed a host to survive
buried deep only reason alive!
It searched for a victim to enter and control
but the battle raged on
the explosion that had set an evil alien free
sensed few living about
desperate saw a soldier in ruins cowering
soon his mind devouring!
From a hunched weary man now stood tall
his eyes lit brightly
a predator filled with the long pent-up anger
could start his quest
walking along abruptly the body just dropped
a bullet in the back stopped!
There was nobody to transfer into felt the pain
and the end of life
back in its innate shape hovered over the scene
blending in with smoke
rising from the fires that littered far below
decided it was the moment to go!
Into the vacuum of space where it could survive
to wander in search
of another world that itself could easily destroy
settling on passing asteroid
leaving earth to be eradicated by its own hand
as ill winds the fires fanned!
With a last thought could do no more damage
than the brutality of the human rage!
