The aircraft rose into the black night sky
from an isolated airfield
followed by a second the noise absorbed
in the thick heavy air
accelerating into the void from their base
hidden far from the human race!
Thick woodland covered the rough terrain
heading out on a mission
sounds fading the flash of their afterburners
became engulfed in the clouds
to make contact with the unknown threat
with force would be met!
A huge luminous disk came into their sight
their status on red alert
but it immediately sped away at high-speed
pursued by the interceptors
could not lock onto this zigzagging sphere
never able to get near!
Stopping and turning at incredible G forces
left them simply as watchers
in inferior craft it raced towards the planes
but all equipment failed
as it sped overhead their engines stalled
came back their power restored!
As if to show its superiority hovered in front
of the disbelieving pilots
then became so bright it blinded their vision
seemed to turn off like a light
the skies once more empty lonely and clear
in this vast heavenly frontier!
Reporting all contact was lost with target
had no explanation for sighting!
