Down the Rabbit Hole April 6

Sam Adams Goes Down the Rabbit Hole, NaNoPoMo Prompt Sam Adams was having a bad night He often would fall into a deep trouble sleep Where his mind would go down deep Into the proverbial rabbit holes Exploring one dark nightmare After another. He saw himself in Ukraine As a front line soldier Watching the Russians Come in killing people Left and right. Saw the Russians line up And execute men Raping women and children Setting the victims on fire. Then he was in the U.S. When the nukes began to fall All over the world Armageddon on steroids. Nuclear madness erupted The Russians bombing NATO allies The US, French and British firing back Berlin, DC, London, Moscow became Nuclear graveyards. China bombs Taiwan, Then invades the island. India and Pakistan trade nuclear attacks. Iran attacks Israel and Saudi as well. North Korea invades the South Nukes flying over Seoul And Tokyo Amid this total madness Giant ships appear in the sky And a full scale the alien invasion begins. . The terrified survivors flee the carnage As nuclear winter settles on the land. The invaders from the sky End the war Enslaving most humans That had survived. Somehow Sam Adams and his wife Were still alive Living in a refugee camp Deep in the mountains. Fleeing the wild animals The tigers, lions, and wolves That were feasting on dead humans And cattle everywhere. The aliens following the humans Looking for more to enslave. The nuclear war though was over The few remaining soldiers Fighting against the common enemy, Sam Adams woke up Realizing that it was all Just a nightmare. Turning on the TV Watching the carnage in Ukraine He wondered if his nightmare Was it an omen of the future?
