Sidey’s Weekend Theme – 04.11.2011: Anticipation

 

Anticipation

~

I felt the excitement of anticipation.

We were on the threshold of innovation,

About to meet aliens from a faraway nation,

Intelligent life from across the universe,

Intergalactic visitors with whom to converse,

Hold discussions and exchange information,

How much I looked forward to our communication

Prior to their elimination.

  7. Well done . . . loved the surprised ending ~ although I rather hope that aliens can teach us how better to live in harmony. We are in need of a few pointers.

  8. How many have we eliminated out of fear, though they came in peace?
    A sobering thought: we kill because we think others are just like us.

  9. Well thanks a lot for pulling the rug out from under our feet.(nicely done) What got them, “Star Wars” technology, or did we just bore them to death?

  12. OMG, Dee! How perfect a submission for the theme! I was getting sucked in, and then BAM! that prophetic ending – that is all too true and oh so chilling! Wonder if that will really be the way when (not if) this happens. . .our track record as a species is not too good – but I can anticipate and long for a better ending, right? 😆

  16. Good ideas Denise. I would never have thought of such an original approach.
    The last line is a sting in the tail.!
