Weird Happening

Updated on June 27, 2017

As my foot touched the surface of a strange new world

My mind began to flash back when, as all was in a whirl

Shocking sights to my eyes appeared, my wanting to fear

Odd domiciles lined every lane, many portholes to appear.

Ravaged wheeled vehicles rusty and burned, everywhere

Rooftops of some caved in as if disaster had struck there

Not a single life to see in this place was nothing to remain

An empty lot without a sign, suggesting desertion so plain

Suddenly I saw some movement but was slow, then to fall

As I approached, it did try to walk but could not move at all

A weird figure much like my own, beneath that suit, I wore

Tried to communicate without thoughts, bizarre, even more

As I lifted its head, it uttered a little sound never heard before

Just as a plea for help, its mouth seemed to say, it did implore

Then the curious being met its demise, going limp in my arm

Made me feel so sad, alone, sensing I was not free from harm

Next, I saw a most disturbing sight, oval shapes with a stem

Identical to habitats where I was from, looked just like them

Yet, these residences did not have life, empty, were so frail

How in this world did I see them there, did put me in a spell

At last, I saw a creature, strange, made me cringe inside out

Had a hundred legs and crawled over the ground on its route

On our planet where I came from, all life has but just one leg

Our three eyes never miss one thing, of no visual loss to beg

Was a rumour going about, that this world had died away

A reason I had paid that visit then, no place I'd wish to stay

Seems so much pollution, greed and hatred ruled the day

This once beautiful pearl in the stars, now a stone so grey

I was so happy to get back to my ship just then and to leave

A shame this planet, not one more chance, a single reprieve

The planetary group from where I come, a trillion miles away

Its beings all get along fine, respect and caring we all display

      Such excellent expression in this poem of yours! Saddening and disturbing, as well, as it should be.

      Hi Whonu. What a shock to visit such a dying planet. Sad that this could be Earth. Great poem that leaves one to ponder. Well done.

      "This once beautiful pearl in the stars, now a stone so grey." Sounds like an epitaph. Good job, slowly and cautiously preparing us for the end. Sad tale. Excellently written!

      Great work about the tragedies that fill our world today. I really felt the emotion expressed through the words that you chose.
