They’re Coming!

Why aren’t they listening to me? I’ve stood on the plinth, overlooking the city, for years – keeping watch. Now that I’ve spotted something nobody seems to want to know.

“They’re coming!” I scream, pointing to the sky on the horizon. But nobody cares. Nobody’s listening.

Once these heavy clouds lift they’ll see for themselves but by then it’ll be too late. Thousands of alien spaceships, nothing more than bright pin pricks in the sky, coming this way.

They see this as their ‘New World’, their fresh start and they have no intention of sharing it with us worthless humans.

Now that I'm retired I have more time to devote to writing my blog and creating short stories.

  1. Why aren’t they listening to me? One has to wonder how many times this question has been asked. Watching and waiting, then being ignored. They will have &*(% to pay, that’s for sure.


  2. The protagonist in this has low self-esteem – thinking of us as “worthless” humans.
    in fact, I have it on the down low, that they are looking forward to meeting us and actually entering into some trade agreements with our more right-leaning conservative and finance oriented political types. Especially since we don’t seem to have much concern about the environment, and they like to keep their planet relatively healthy. We may just be stupid or worth trading with, not worthless.



  3. That’s a bit bloody rich coming from Columbus! It’s a shame he didn’t warn the American Indians that their lands would be stolen, their menfolk murdered, their wives raped and their children sold into slavery.


  4. Yeagh… yup, this could happen if someone is out there. Why would any advanced civilization communicate with us? Just look at what we do to each other… Great story.


I look forward to reading your comments
