Death of a Super Earth and the Jatites’ Attempted Coup
My answer to Genna's East's Challenge
My response to the writing challenge issued by Genna Eastman, with a copy of her rules, also a continuation from where ‘always exploring’ a.k.a. Ruby Fuller left off on her contribution to this challenge. (See the link to Genna’s challenge and the other Hubber's response)
Rules of the Challenge
1. You can create a short story; a flash fiction short; an installment series; fantasy comic strips or illustrations with free verse poetry; a treatment for a screenplay. Write your story from any perspective; for example, as characters within the story-line; as a journalist, etc. Please feel free to use videos, newspaper headline visuals, or other creative elements. You can team up with other Hubbers, or write this project on your own.
2. Your story or presentation must follow the Story Background outlined below in order to establish a common denominator and a point in which to begin the story. Be as detailed in your story-line/writing (which can lead into dozens of different directions), or as general as you wish.
3. Have fun!
It is Earth year 2025
A massive ark type spacecraft has landed off the east coast of the United States.
After the October 2018, launch of the James Webb’s Space Telescope (JWST) part of NASA’s Flagship program, which has been gathering METI data from planets in our solar system and out of our solar system.
Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence (METI) has not received answers from the unsolicited messages sent to other worlds for several years, But the launch of the powerful James Webb telescope, an enormous breakthrough in understanding the Universe and our origins, could change all that.
Added to that the discovery of Jate22 (i.e. a Super Earth) an exoplanet (a planet outside our solar system which orbits a star rather than the sun) is such a breakthrough.
The CO2 emissions on the super earth Jate22 have reached critical mass, marine life could no longer live in the acidic waters and all bipedal humanoids must evacuate or face extinction, as their food sources have become scarce to the point of no return and the Jatite must find and occupy another planet so their species can survive.
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), also known as Messaging to Extra-Terrestrial intelligence (METI) has been sending messages to other worlds for several years. Scientists from across the globe are excited over the launch of the powerful James Webb telescope, an enormous leap forward in our quest to understand the Universe and our origins.
Where have all the Flowers Gone
Jate’s Coup hysterical satirical poem
© by Shyron Shenko
The whole world was in a panic
As the Ark from Jate touched down in the Atlantic
From the Captain a message was telepathically sent
Requesting to come ashore and meet with our president/ leader in any event
The ark crew was admonished not to reveal their intent
By the Captain Jatite Beauty a clairvoyant message was sent
I will keep their leader busy then here is what to do
You can all come ashore to carry out the coup
We need a new planet so I’m trusting in you
Though apprehensive the leaders of our nation
Mesmerized in their fixation
Watched as to the limousine the Jatite beauty was led
By our pompous leader with visions of bedtime dancing in his head
The beautiful Jatite Captain smiled as his thoughts she read
Their mind reading ability enabled the Jatite to understand
Thoughts in every language and respond in kind
Understanding everything unsaid
President Trump had served half term from 2016 to 2018
Before he was impeached and replaced by his VP
Elected to the 2020 term to 2024 Pence showing his true colors
We found what we got was worse than before the election 2024
The election 2024’s apathetic voters who chose not to vote
And the Electoral College, who do nothing but!
With no lesson learned, here is what we got
Reinstalled President Trump on the White House throne
As the Limo rolled away with the
And with his hand on her thigh
You could hear Trump say
“Nobody, respects women more than me
Trump Says He Can't Say He Treats Women with Respect
A lecher you may detest
But, as lechers go he was one of the best
He went where no other mad man dared go
He would grab what he could and still reach for more
He grabbed for her crotch, his face turned red
As his eyes glazed over as he said
“Yes!” telepathically she/he said
For year and years we studied you
And through the James Webb, Space Telescope
We know that you studied us too
And what you did to your women I will now do to you
The Jate beauty grabbed the small handful and holding on tight
Asked him telepathically,
Do you want to engage or take flight?
The President screamed for help
Like in a nightmare no sound came out
The first lady entered the White House
Intercepted by the secret service
Who said “my President wants his privacy”
His privacy? Melania snapped
I’ll be quiet as a mouse….
Melania silently opened the door
Then with a silent gasp
As a sardonic smile crept across her face
Finally someone has put him in his place
The Jate22 Ark crew came ashore to carry out the coup
Civilian Hillary Clinton knew just what to do
As she had them rounded up, the Jate ark’s motley crew
Then had them imprisoned in their own ark
And sunk it in the ocean of blue
