Dreaded!

The moment he had dreaded being back

from six months tour of duty

though it had been hard felt more secure

with comrades on the battleground

was privy to information aliens were here

infiltrating his country’s population

numbers critical certain an invasion force

intel received from reliable source!

 

The harsh reality it was his own home city

where the largest concentration

had been recently reported was assigned

to a covert unit to seek and destroy

soon would be engaged in the campaign

as it was humanities survival

this would spiral into a deadly final clash

when forever into oblivion crash!

 

One fact was hard to swallow identification

until now was impossible to detect

fully integrating with the human population

their DNA sequence almost matching

being why there had been no prior warning

of the extent of the quiet invasion

as this species not part of the known races

stored in the classified data bases!

 

The military units were based in a school

on the edge of the city limit

they waited for their direct orders to enter

each issued with special goggles

told the only way you could tell the enemy

adding to the dangerous mission

within hours planes arrived for air support

their objective this enemy to thwart!

 

Had little time for any apprehension to build

explosions shook their positions

aliens had made the first devastating strike

with their advanced technology

the orders came swiftly now no turning back

into a war with a devious foe

a vicious enemy had never before engaged

or on such a theatre of war waged!

 

With their added vision they could identify

the shape shifter’s real form

adding to the raging fires and total carnage

his team were slaughtered

disintegrating into dust as they charged

his mind focused on his family

safe in one of the underground fortifications

hidden below the cities foundations!

 

He did not look back as into the abyss he went!
