Once upon a darkening night,
there on the horizon came a pulsing light,
that shot through the sky right over my head,
that turned my blood to ice and my heart to lead.

It shot across one or two, three times more,
though not quite as hurried as it used to, before.
Then came to a stop just a few feet away
staring at that white light of darkness and day

“I’ve been searching for you throughout time and space,
you’re mine my young satellite, my bright shining ace”
I choked on my tea and with a voice full of fear;
“Who are you?” I cried “And why are you here?”

He spared me a moment to whisper his plan,
And sat for a moment before he began.
He was to save his world whatever the cost,
which "unfortunately" meant that my planet was lost.

"We set up mines near the core of our moon
but it broke apart and my planet was doomed.
The moon drifted from orbit and fell to the sun,
my planet slowed down, our end had begun."

He reached for the moon with his outstretched hands,
whispering in a tongue borne of faraway lands,
manipulating gravity, space and time,
snatching away that beautiful Luna of mine!
