Postcard 21


We thought we were prepared for
The Chehalid ships we had
Tracked for centuries. From the
First weak message our instruments
Picked up and broadcast to the
World, the satellites were
Fixed to Centralia Alpha and
We watched the blips in the
Space-Time continuum grow
Closer. With each day that
Passed, our anxieties grew
How could we trust their
Intentions would be peaceful?
What if they lied? Many agreed
It is how humans would
Behave, had behaved, when we
Encountered new people on new lands. By the time they
Arrived, the Earth was empty, as we all
Hid in the naval of the Moon.
