Death of a Super Earth and the Jatites’ Attempted Coup

Updated on April 22, 2017

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)

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), previously known as Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST), is a part of NASA's ongoing Flagship program.

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

“YOU’RE A…”

“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

      Au fait, thank you for the comments.

      I hope you heard the news today such a shake up in Washington

      The strings of the puppeteer are reaching far and wide

      exposing many a secret and many more lies

      How much longer before honest men step up

      to cut those lies that bind them to the ones who lied?

      Hope all is well with you

      Interesting. Sometimes it seems it is Trump (really Bannon, he's the brain in the works) orchestrating a coup. Maybe they are the aliens! In my research about whether aliens were watching us for a hub I wrote a while back several high ranking U.S. officials said aliens from other worlds were already here. Maybe that is why Trump/Bannon and Co., have set out to destroy our government, because they are aliens taking over this planet . . .

      Hope you and John and puppy are all well.

      Chris, I am so happy you found this hilarious.... I would be happier if you took up the challenge and continue from the day after the encounter by the Captain and the Donald, she/he was with the don and not on the Ark when it sunk, so she is still loose in the White House or at least in the U.S. and you are such a good writer.

      Blessings my friend.

      I'm also late to visit, dear Shyron. On the upside, I do enjoy the interactive comments so much as well.

      You tackled this challenge stretching yourself, while keeping true to your muse's poetic voice. Excellent job! Love and hugs, Maria

      Genna, thank you so much for the comment and compliment. No need to be sorry, but I am glad you read my answer to your wonderful challenge.

      Blame this on Ruby, she gave me the idea. I saw Milania's with a sweet smile at the inauguration, then trump whispered in her ear and her sweet smile turned sardonic.

      I am so appreciative of this challenge and that you approve.

      Blessings my friend

      Hi there. I'm so sorry I'm late but it's been a jungle of a week. Lol. This is so imaginative and clever. I love how you resumed where Ruby left off. And that sardonic smile on Melania's face at the end is perfect! Wonderful job, Shyron...thank you. :-)

      Hahahaaa.... I absolutely loved this! At first, it almost depressed me with a truth and hard reality of our bad luck right now, but by the end I was laughing my you know what off.

      I often say - if this man wasn't such a disgrace and travesty for us, it would be fun to wake up just to laugh at his complete and total lack of intelligence. However, considering his inadequacies may doom us all, we can't laugh. Well, we can when someone writes such a funny poem like you have here. We deserve a laugh, don't we? Thanks for this! :)

      Flourish, thank you for the comment. I really appreciate you. I think you are so right about Melania, but she got what she thought she wanted and like us she is stuck with it, but unlike most of us we did not ask for it.

      Blessings and hugs my friend.

      Ruby, Ruby my dear friend,

      You have me laughing all over again

      This is from the story you started

      And thought about if trump should find himself the victim

      Instead of the aggressor

      What would he do

      Engage or run for his life

      Love your poem you are fantastic.

      Blessings and hugs

      Small handful indeed. Anyone who has to brag so much about their man package feels insecure about its contents and function. And I love the ending. He will hopefully end up sinking himself. I believe Melania secretly (?) hates him and won't go to D.C. because she knows he is a bad hombre who did bad things with the Russians and will get caught. Why uproot oneself and one's child for that? Very creative response to the challenge.

      Hello Shy - You have provided a beautiful submission to Genna's challenge. You combine wit and anger and a Science-Fiction element as well.

      We don't get Pence (I hope) as they are in possession of stolen goods. It is a recall we are looking for, not a resignation. Just like the Supreme Court seat, you do not get to keep stolen goods.

      OMG, I'm lol. Grabbed his small handful. Hee. He/ She, he probably didn't care. Hillary saved us from a horrible death. He dared to go where no man had gone before. HaHa Superman he's NOT. This is witty and funny.

      2018 you say

      I guess we can hold on until that wonderful day

      When he's kicked out of our White House

      And Pence takes over

      We'll be rollin' in sweet smellin' clover

      Cos' the law has been changed by the people

      Obama will return, people shouting from the highest steeple

      " Yes we can "

      Our nation is well and safe again

      Immigrants are welcome, once more our friends

      Hillary will be the VP

      And we Democrats can yell Hee Hee.

      Genna wanted creativity and you delivered big time...creativity and an ability to span two genres and make them both work, to come together, into a cohesive and interesting response to that challenge. Bravo for this one, my friend, and blessings always.
