A deep darkness over the land
Then- a flash of light in the distance
A bright and brilliant orb lifts into the sky
And warm the earth with it's rays.
A new day begins now.
View if you will, a house
An ordinary house a first, simple, plain
A few flamingos and the lawn gnomes
Do not be deceived
For all is not what it seems.
Look closer if you will
Look past the walls, and you will find something here
A creature not of this earth
One who is here with everything at stake
One shot is all he has left
One shot to prove himself
One chance to prove wrong all those who've mocked him
One true chance to stand before the Almighty Tallest
And proclaim, "I am worthy"
He's had chances like this before
He's screwed up
A mistake that cost him and cost him dearly.
But learned from his mistakes, he did
And with the knowledge from that encounter
He knows only this: "I must succeed"
There is no other option
Succeed and prove himself
Or be doomed to live with the filthy beast around him
The light cascades across his face
Through the closed blinds
As he lies on the couch asleep, plans in hand.
Crimson orbs snap open
He goes through all the morning rituals
And adorns his ingenious disguise
Then, passing a dozing SIR by the door
He steps out into the world and onto the planet's soil.
He winces as the golden light meets his disguised eyes
And scoffs at the earthaniod soil staining his boots
This planet will be no more that a speck of dust when he gets through with it
A grin forms on his lips
A destroyed earth
And it would have been the smallest of his race to do it
To bring down such a huge idiotic planet
As a small animal would bring down a great beast
He would make this planet fall to it's knees and bow before him
To have the inhabitants of this filthy rock
Cower at the very mention of him name.
And as his proud irken eyes adjust to the hideous star
It cheers him
For it is a reminder that this is a new day
A new chance to spread havoc and doom
To make the Tallest proud of him
To truly be worthy of the title "Invader"
And, he is reminded
As he fingers the device in his pocket
A new chance to deal with him
That annoying, pitiful, arrogant human
That had meddled in his affairs far too often
A blotch constantly staining his beautify crafted plans.
But no more
Yes, this is the day.
The day the human is no more.
The plan he has is flawless
Nothing can defeat him this time
"Now human" he thinks
You are mine.
As he marches proudly -
As in his nature to do so
Down the hard pavement
He stands on a small patch of grass.
The tall building labeled "Skool" stands before him
Embracing him in a shadow
Now, it is time to wait
Come on little human
Face me if you can.
Then as the irken scours the land with determined eyes
A familiar sound he hears
Click, click, click
Boots on the pavement.
He has come
A voice rings in his ears behind him
"Come on out alien"
It is time
Time to start destiny
The voice calls out again
He stepes from the shadows
turns to face him with a glare
As the voice dares to call him by name
"Zim. So finally you show"
