THE PLANET EATERS

The Planet Eaters

They came, the planet eaters, they trundled on and on they came upon us quietly so at first we did not notice anything was wrong.

The were tall and they were frightening with a wiry and metal shape, they crept up on us silently and left us wide eyed with mouth agape.

Where once was green meadow is now just dust and sand. Where flowers bloomed and trees grew is left, just barren land.

People stood in horror they could not believe their eyes. Those who stood in their path were killed, onlookers shuddered at their cries.

Soon the animals disappeared none left to be found no birds in the sky, no fish in the sea nor bug from underground. Supplies of food and petrol became something to fight for and without electricity and gas there soon began a war. Neighbour fort neighbour family betrayed their own and very soon no where was safe and no where was even home.

The people did not last long a few went underground  but the planet eaters killed them as they burrowed under ground. They drained the world completely of every visage of life nothing left but dust where once all things live were rife.

    And so, out of the midnight, nightmares arose,
    and in those nightmares other nightmares
    even more frightening and morose,
    and in that time of werrg werrg click click
    all became silent
    until there were only planet eaters left in another world.

    Shudder.
