The Return

We left Sol just to survive,

To find a place where Man could thrive.

Through void of space our starships soared,

Trepidation on all aboard.


We found a world, returned to Sol,

Hoped that Man's bell had yet to toll.

Yet the welcome, it was dire,

CoD ships opened focussed fire.


Some of us escaped their aim,

Other ships went down in flames.

They swarmed like sharks in void of space,

Sought the end to human race.


They'd taken the system's stations,

Corrupted a generation.

Imprisoned those that we held dear,

Ruling with both faith and fear.


Time for Sol is running out,

Yet we cannot turn about.

Rescue efforts must begin.

We fight and we die or win.
