The Invasion

Post by Mr. Tweedy » Thu Feb 10, 2011 7:09 pm

The invaders appeared without warning or announcement. They descended from the sky silently, on a Tuesday. They did not greet us, and they did not attack. If we were in their way, they plowed through us. If we were not, they passed us by.

When it became evident why they had come, we tried to fight, but no weapon could touch them. They paid no heed to our bullets or bombs; they weren’t even annoyed.

They drained the oceans and stripped the soil. They left nothing here but drifting dust.

We assume they’ve left, though no one saw them go.

Darn multi-stellar corporations. They don't owe any allegiance to anyone.

Huh. If all the Earth was a desert, it probably wouldn't sustain life for very long, eh? DOOM. Doooooom,

That's why no one saw them go.

You can wake up from a comma, but not from a period.
