We created a monster (poem)

girl

This the twelfth in my poetry series.

Here are the usual links to catch up on the rest of the poems, if you haven’t already

DESTINATION EARTH

WELCOME TO EARTH

HUNTED

ANIMALS

TAKEN FOR A RIDE

OVERKILL

BETRAYED

STARTING OVER

LIFE ON EARTH

MAKING IT WORK

REVENGE


 

Dead soldiers lay on the ground

Their heads exploded

Their brains on show

So they did have brains

But did they have hearts?

Lila cut into them to find out

She smiled bitterly

Knowing that even monsters

Had hearts, but didn’t use them

She was the monster now

The thing to be feared

No longer held back by her own heart

Lila got herself a small screen

And used it to call Jay

Claiming to be ready

To give herself up

As long as he promised

She wouldn’t be harmed

Jay didn’t keep his word

But neither did Lila

She faced Jay and his friends

As they aimed their guns at her

And she killed them all

Saving Jay for last

The peace Lila felt didn’t last long

When big screens and small voice boxes

Began to alert the public

That this was an invasion

Forced tests were introduced on everyone

Resulting in aliens being discovered
