Locked away naked in an (Alien) Brig with nary a fig

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 16, 2014 6:42 am

Aliens probably knew
that I was suicidal so they blew
away all my plans by daring
to lock me in the brig
wearing
no clothing
and not even a Terran fig
leaf.

I sighed with relief
as the torture stopped
and to the floor naked, I dropped.

My Alien body is covered
with fur and despite being uncovered
and nude
it didn't feel rude
as my kids took
a sad
look
at their Dad.

My Alien Wife
probably bribed the guards
to save my life.

I guard
my dignity with my paws
so that less nudity my kids indeed saw.

Confessing the naked truth naked in an (Alien) body

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:23 am

My bruised Alien genitals, I gripped
and blood continued to drip
from various wounds hidden
by my fur as my wife and kids suddenly
asked the question 'is it all true
what the guards say about you'?

Naked and hurting
with blood spurting
in various wounds,
I rounded up the courage to tell
what I guess they could already smell.

I told my wife and kids
that I was indeed a Terran spy
in a Cat Alien body disguise.

However, they didn't believe their ears
actually did hear
me confess to helping Terra destroy
the planet we once truly enjoyed.

Rotting away in an (Alien) Jail abandoned by all as I recall

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:14 am

Tired
and hurt, I retired
to sleeping away the pain
that I will surely gain
on the next cycle equivalent to a day
as on Terra, they say.

My wife and kids have now
abandoned me but somehow
I feel liberated now
after confessing the truth.

The truth
didn't set me free
since you see helping
in destroying
a planet
with all of the planet's
inhabitants will get
you a prison term
that is firm.

I squirm
at the thought
that I will rot
in jail
if Terrans fail
to capture this fleet
and I sadly accept my private defeat.

(Alien) (Rumors) Regarding a Mythical Planet

Post by secretnude » Sun Feb 16, 2014 12:20 pm

The GalactiCat
does look a bit like a Cat
as the GalactiCat has four retractable
Puma fighter pods that is able
to fold closely to the main body.

The GalactiCat
also has a flattened feline head
that comes ahead
of the body.

The GalactiCat
is heavily damaged now
but somehow
the GalactiCat
still keeps Terran forces on their toes
as it goes
in a Galaxywide quest for a planet
that gets
called Perbast
or the Home Planet of Bast
their Cat God of War
that so far
has eluded
the GalactiCat that
some Cats think that
the search is deluded.

Twilight of the (Rumored)(Alien) Ancient Egyptian Gods

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 12:03 am

All good things must come to an end
as a wise Terran friend
told me, an Alien Cat
that
is impersonating the Cat God Bast.

I am at last
moving off this planet
to get
to Duat
or Space and I left instructions for Maat
or how to maintain order
to my Pharaoh who now orders
around
all the loyal Terran primitive
natives
that I found.

I am being prepared for stasis by being
stripped
naked then wrapped
in white strips
of clothing
that will be protecting
me from cosmic rays
that would graze
our Pyramidal spaceship
that is hip.

(Alien)(Rumored)(Cursed) Boat to the afterlife

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 2:51 am

I, an impersonator of our Cat God Bast
wouldn't last
without my entourage
to whom I gave passwords or "spells"
to encourage my entourage
to accompany me to dwell
in our Pyramidal Spaceship
that is going into Outer Space
since in Space
loneliness, I might face.

Our spacecraft does have a security
system that the natives
call "cursed" and security
is necessary so that relatively
few natives
would be able to join us in stasis.

It would be a crisis
in space
that we will face
if the life support
can't support
all the living cargo
and hence the embargo.

(Alien) (Rumored) Egyptian Gods on a Sun Boat to Duat

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 4:17 am

We will be in stasis soon
under the light of a full moon
in our Pyramidal Spaceship
and our Spaceship
lifted off the ground.

Natives on the ground
probably found
the light of a 'Sun' travelling
away on a 'boat'
that seemed to float
on air
and probably despaired
at the departure of their
so called Gods.

Playing the role of a War God
was quite draining
and at times constraining
as my training
was in xenoanthropology
and ancient Space Cat history.

We took away
all our High Technology
toys, yesterday
so we can deny
ever being on the Nile.

Re: Secretnude's Drabble Poetry Corner

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:08 am

I am a fan of both BSG and Stargate
and hence, I put them on my poetic plate
to sate
my insatiable
appetite for science fiction.

My hunger for good science fiction
now makes me desire to write
science fiction
that is hopefully written
well.

Oh well,
I will never know
if what I write does show
some potential unless
some non guest
on this forum dares to voice an opinion.

I have seen only a few voice their opinions
but I write to entertain
myself first and if you are entertained too,
I soon hope to get your view.

Primer on Galactic Politics after the Destruction of Krat

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 6:32 am

Kilrat Dominion colonies
became either Terran colonies
or independent systems.

Many independent systems
opted to join the Cyborg Federation
which is now the Sole Galactic Superpower.

The Cyborg Federation
wields that power
in a manner
that is reminiscent
of America when it was a still a decent
Superpower after the fall
of the Berlin wall
and before the fall
of the US Dollar as a reserve currency.

Pax Galactica they will call this current
era
but this era
will not last forever
as did US Superpower
status.

Meanwhile, the status
of pending Membership Applications
to the Federation
is under deliberation.

(Alien) Galactic Cats hiding in the Cat's Eye Nebula

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:21 am

The close to defeat
elite fleet
of Galactic Cats
now hides in the Cat's Eye Nebula that
has hot ionized gases that
interferes with Terran Drone
Sensor Arrays.

The GalactiCat Sensor Arrays
need to be fixed as Terran Drones
destroyed several reflector dishes
making the GalactiCat Engineer wish
for a couple of repair drones.

However, drones
can't be trusted as Cyborg Terrans
have better skills in making hacks
that these Cats
severely lack.

Terrans
have these Cats
on the run
and it is not fun
as eating algal paste
that doesn't taste
good
puts the fleet in a bad mood.

(Alien) Puss Engineers in Magnetic Boots

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 11:24 am

'Everybody
engage magnetic boots!
We don't want anybody
to shoot
into space',
said the Engineer of the GalactiCat
to the faces
of the GalactiCat
Sensor Array Repair Team.

Team
turned on their magnetic boots
and then carefully shoot
out of an unlocked
airlock
bearing cool
laser welding
repair tools.

The Team
was wearing
a bulky
and quite heavy
spacesuit
that suits
the Cat's Eye Nebula's heavy
radiation
levels.

Radiation
exposure levels
was monitored via a radiation
patch
and if the patch
turns black
from the Team
the Team Member
must remember
to detach
and turn back
to the unlocked
airlock.

(Alien) Battleship that is slick is a bit sick

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 11:47 am

The GalactiCat
Sensor Array Coverage has holes
due to Reflector Dish holes
from vile
Terran Drone rail gun projectiles.

GalactiCat
might as well be a partially blind Cat
unable to fight
a mighty
Terran Attack Dog
in thick water vapor fog.

Work in patching the holes was slow
since the repair team had to go
with a thick protective suit
that is unsuitable
for quick moment
but does help prevent
radiation sickness
which is a bigger mess
given the GalactiCat
needs all her Space Cat
Engineers
to be in near
perfect health since the GalactiCat
itself is a sick cat.

(Alien)Cat Fleet again flees from Drones that are like fleas

Post by secretnude » Mon Feb 17, 2014 12:20 pm

Tom was an engineer
that is without peer
and without fear.

Tom was the Tomcat
that
sacrificed his life
to do a job
leaving three kittens and a wife
that
he loved.

We truly despair
that the Sensor Array Repairs
only restored up to 80 percent
Sensor Array Coverage
before we had to recently
engage
yet more Terran Drones
and we flee yet again
from another war zone.

We lost yet again
four more civilian ships
since our sensor coverage was not hip.

We found another star
system that wasn't far
to conduct more repairs
as we continued to despair.

(Alien) Soylent Green taste really mean

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 12:26 am

I do wish that
our Algal paste
was made of enemies that
we laid to waste.

I felt a bit sore
as I learned about the paste
a bit more.

I learned that
Space Cat
waste
was recycled by Algae to taste
really bad.

I felt really bad
as the last few Cow Sized Rats
that
we allocated for food
were slaughtered for good
but we have good
Rat conservation measures
since the species, we treasure.

We allocated some space
a few of our Spaceships
for more than a pair
of Rat breeding pairs
since for Rat meat, we despair.

A US reporter that is assigned to cover a war that is far

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 2:05 am

I recall
America's decline and fall
as I look at this wall
that was once part of a mall.

America is a second class power now
eclipsed by China somehow
in military and economic size
as US Global presence is downsized.

Tensions
continue to be high in Asia
as Japan and China
trade more than words
in an absurd
spat
over a few small island that
they exchanged live
fire that is reviving
the militaristic
characteristics
of the Japanese race
that was once nearly erased.

I will soon cover the war
in Japan
and of war,
I am no fan

(Making the Grade) for covering tussles requiring muscle

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 3:03 am

I was surprised
that these Asian powers
that I surmise
does rival American power
now
somehow
chose a civilised
and televised
spectacle to resolve
diplomatic issues that couldn't be resolved.

It was the first of several Mecha Wars
for territory in Asia both near and far.

Japan and China
are the main combatants in Asia
and it has spread to other parts of the world
which is quite better than absurd
open war
that diplomatic efforts have prevented so far.

I was surprised
to me nominated for a Pulitzer prize
for coverage of various diplomatic tussles
that required robotic muscle.

Working forever in the Postsingularity

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:18 am

Postsingularity
America expected perpetual prosperity
as if the Singularity
repealed the basic
economic
laws just like in the new economy
of the 1990's.

Ties
that bind the World
is greater now than in the 1990's
but when America is sick
the World
no longer gets a flu real quick.

Americans living forever sounded good
until it bankrupt pension plans
and placed Wall Street in a bad mood.

Economic laws
don't have many flaws
and plans
of mice
and men, however nice
can be put on ice.

I was a retired
immortal journalist but retirement
I now put in perpetual deferment.

American neopoverty among Postsingularity immortals

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:29 am

I am 230 years old, in perfect health
and my wealth
was wiped by the first Postsingularity crash
since my 401k is now just trash.

I bought so much Gekko Life
Stock as if I bet my immortal life
on the said company and lost
so much that it cost
my retirement,
a retirement
that I am glad
to put on deferment
however sad
I am to be a bit poor.

Poor
folk are common among
the Bicentenarians to which I belong.

I am happy to be employed
and deployed
outside the poor
United States
covering neowars between Asian States.

Nippon Samurai Mecha vs Chinese Lucky Dragon Mecha

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 8:07 am

I have seen Mechs
before
since Mechs
came to the fore
in the neoAfghan wars
where it was US Mechs
versus enemy Tech
trucks but in the Asian neowars
it is an equal match
between two Mecha
that I will watch
in anticipation
of a victorious celebration
in one side
and devastation
plus a desire for a rematch
on the other side.

Japan has a Samurai Mecha
with a Plasma Sword
and words
like Mitsubishi
and Hanabishi
was plastered on the Mech.

China has a Lucky Dragon Mecha
with a breath of Plasma Fire
that to see, I do desire.

Mecha Fight! Nippon Samurai vs Chinese Lucky Dragon 1/4

Post by secretnude » Tue Feb 18, 2014 8:41 am

Mecha in this neowar
are
fighting
for possession
of small islands
called Senkaku Islands
in Japanese
or Diaoyu Islands
in Chinese.
that are an obsession
of both China and Japan
that almost fanned
a conventional war
that was lucky averted so far.

Nippon Samurai Mecha
threw several Mitsubishi Throwing Stars
that didn't go far
as the Chinese Lucky Dragon Mecha
vaporized the Throwing Stars
with its Breath of Plasma Fire.

The Lucky Dragon Mecha
then used its ZTE tail
to hit the Samurai Mecha
but the Dragon failed
as the ZTE tail
was severely curtailed
by the Nippon Plasma Sword.
