Humanity Redefined: Part 2 (A Grim Backstory)

Rating: 2.0


Mentally disturbed by
The hypocrisy of humans,
Harvey Trenton Smith
Plotted for ages
On how we would annihilate
The greed and corruption
That control our planet

“Soon,
Violence,
Megalomania,
Acquisitiveness,
Hypocrisy,
Malfeasance,
They will be gone.”

For years, Harvey toiled
Tirelessly on a machine,
One which could communicate
With interstellar creatures,
As Harvey has always been
Fascinated with “aliens”

The device would send digital signals,
Calling upon these foreign creatures
To visit the planet Earth.

After many years with no results,
He ceased his broadcast of universal transmissions.
Unbeknownst to him, both of his wishes
Would inadvertently come into fruition.

Many lightyears away,
Those who resided on the distant
Planet by the name of Grmattia
Had created a signal accelerator and amplifier,
And thus could receive distant signals faster.

Harvey’s signal arrived at their planet.
They deciphered the signal and traced its origins.
They were primitive.
They decided it would be pleasurable to
Invade and obliterate the planet.

An interdimensional portal opened above Earth.
