In the distance something suddenly glinted
even though in a thick forest
the friends wandered amongst dense trees
with a touch of curiosity
their attention was now drawn to that spot
a choice to investigate or not!
Interest overwhelmed any thought of danger
as the light became more intense
darting at high-speed low but rising into the sky
changing colours then halting
not far ahead they ran eagerly to find the cause
without even a moment to pause!
Then abruptly it hovered and glowed multicolored
small like a probe they had to feel it
strange writing around the centre warm to touch
no sound emanated from it
at first there was no panic but it became so bright
lit the area like a floodlight!
Shooting high above the trees as if tracking them
thinking it was going to strike
tried to find some safe cover but there was none
as they quickly backtracked
from nowhere soldiers were rapidly approaching
on their freedom encroaching!
The group was roughly escorted from the area
as helicopters overhead hovered
leaving them baffled at what they had witnessed
at gun point forced into their car
ordered to leave the forest without explanation
happy to leave avoiding confrontation!
Eventually from a safe distance could monitor
curiosity overcame apprehension
felt the air around them quiver all eyes raised
saw a huge unidentified craft
over the forest cast a dark portentous obscurity
exposing mans real unsurety!
Explosions and shells intermingled with beams
similar to lasers as helicopters fell
a small round shape flew up entered the huge ship
then it just vanished from sight
now devastation in the once peaceful woodland
as a strange wind the flames fanned!
While they could the friends raced from this place
ominous of what mankind would face!
