From The House!

From the house under the shadow of the hill

the couple lived there

for several years looked to the grassy slopes

having an inexplicable dread

that one day something to fear would descend

with no hope to defend!

 

Together on its summit had contentedly sat

enjoying panoramic views

open grass lands where sheep lazily grazed

everything in perfect place

then the natural order seemed to prevail

nobody believed their tale!

 

They went on looking and waiting for the event

as others simply ignored them

after that first slight tremor they both knew

the moment had arrived

on a bright day the sky began to go very dark

a date humans would mark!

 

The premature darkness passed as the huge craft

came slowly over the hill

their years of fear realised the invasion was here

most panicked and fled

waves of small craft then spewed out from within

mans nightmare would soon begin!

 

As the first casualties and explosions began to happen

below the nice small house

a new life began they had prepared for this eventuality

settling in their fitted bunker

where both stayed safe and unharmed until they died

the enemy the couple had defied!

 

Above the shattered world overrun by alien marauders

disintegrated as the enemy moved on!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
