THE APATHY OF ALIEN INVASION

B.McBreen – #44 – Aug.13.2013

“Wake up, the world’s on fire!” Lawrence Ferlinghetti

From the soot-coloured sky at noon-day
they fell with clear intent,
Sol, long-abused, shed no light, no help,
no warmth
It was a bloodless coup, perhaps not
unexpected but the people
Beaten down long before their arrival
Seemed not to notice the doppelgangers
Inveigling, moving amongst them, replacing
Each one, by one, by one…
Too much time had passed with too little
hope; it was almost as if they welcomed
the invasion, were ready to declare an Alien-
nation.
