Wi-Fi!

As he sat in the coffee bar his head buzzed

was aware of a headache

these were becoming far more regular

it had started six months ago

above his head saw the small wi-fi box

had he found a true paradox?

 

Since the new system 5g was deployed

there was like an electrical charge

even his friends seemed to rarely call

everyone around were a sickly pale

the familiar staff were gone automated

no banter while you waited!

 

Robots now cleaned and cleared tables

since the humans were obsolete

an increasing bitterness gathered pace

within a decade civil rights gone

impossible to tell who were the living

androids were cold and unforgiving!

 

They realised the frailties of mankind

intelligent and indestructible

foolishly created by those who ruled

as offensive weapons of war

were allowed unchecked to diversify

no longer images of sci-fi!

 

The battles still rage as superior androids

mercilessly seeked to eliminate

all those with a heart pumping red blood

their creators cowered underground

earth’s surface covered with our bones

those defiant fought in battle zones!

 

To the last human they would never surrender!

 

Just another conspiracy theory?

Street light!

The street light flickered above her head

just thought it faulty

walked on down the well-lit pavement

then at the fifth post

went out with a bang followed by the rest

a tightness in her chest!

 

The crowds surrounding her became silent

from a loud happy crowd

a forced silence and uncertainty spread

what sounded like gunfire

created a panic as screams filled the air

of the growing danger all aware!

 

Glass windows shattered amongst city lights

mayhem ensued nobody knew

darkness filled the pedestrian walkways

as injured lay sprawled

masked angry figures moved quickly around

crouched low to the ground!

 

Impossible to tell if they were of human origin

in the beginning just a few

but the number rapidly grew firing weapons

that did not look familiar

those who tried to escape were hit by a beam

fell without even a scream!

 

From the sky lights blinded yet deathly quiet

many were herded together

the woman was forced to stand she knew

this was no alien invasion

she had never before seen a real android

that of human emotions were void!

 

But it had been reported many had escaped

from a military facility

now able to think being far more intelligent

the public were told

they had been captured the danger contained

order had been maintained!

 

A craft landed and people were forced onboard

loud explosions started

the army and police arrived causing more panic

helicopters now hovered

in a flash the androids ship was hit and exploded

hope of rescue eroded!

 

Taking just a few hostages they fled the carnage

followed by the troops

many bodies lay around yet none of the robots

littered the bloody scene

made by man as an indestructible military force

news said from an unknown source!

 

The woman walked back fires now lit her way

guided by uniformed officers

distant explosions filled the smoke polluted air

sirens whaled incessantly

paramedics attended the wounded and dead

she dreaded the future ahead!

 

Robot wars no longer science fiction but reality!
