Friday Night Poetry Corner #104

a look into a sci fi thriller

Hey good peoples!!

 

I think everyone noticed by now that I am doing the poetry corner every other week; 2 editions per month.  The reason for this is because other projects are taking up a lot of my time.  I am currently writing for:

When you have time come check us out for informative, unique topics that matter to you and others around you!

 

Now back to business, well sort of because it is mostly fun for me 🙂

 

Today I will feature a sort of poem from my science fiction book called Astronomical.  It is a space adventure but with an anti-utopian theme.  I don’t want to give most away but I will put some of the story in to so you can get the context of it.   Please decipher what you read and leave a comment please.  I am really curious to what you guys think of it. Well let’s get to it…

 

Oh, thanks again for all of the support!

 

 

 

*Excerpt from Chapter 1 of Astronomical 

 

 

 

Colonel Harrison walked out. He closed the door behind him and wondered about his mission. He strolled down the corridor and read up on the other crew members. He smiled inwardly. He couldn’t get the thoughts of war out of his mind or the talks of vengeance and death. Nexus Jor seemed so foreign to him, like a distant relative calling out of the blue or a new flavor of ice cream from a candy stand; it was just not normal. He realized such thoughts were not for a soldier to have, especially an honored officer of the Space Core. He pushed his thoughts to the back of his mind and hopefully they would be forgotten.

But what was never forgotten was the song that he had heard during basic training. The same damn song that played at night and all night. All night long it echoed off of the blank walls, the two way windows and the marble blue floor. It endorsed the duty of men or so it was told to him by his commanding sergeant. Those speakers kept the words humming. Those speakers were more determined to condition good officers, more so than the human element. You see, machines never question orders but humans have the potential to, which made them more fragile. The words were smoothing once he was older, more seasoned and of course more loyal to the Core…..

♫♫Listen good solider

Don’t think ahead

Listen to the Commanders

From the books you read.

March good solider

March to the land

Listen for the howling

Of the Viking clans.

Listen good solider

Listen very well

Once a brave solider

We’ll never touch Hell

Learn good soldier

Learn what you can

Memorize your enemy

To break their stand

Kill good soldier

Kill all the weak

Make sure they fear you

While they bleed

Love good soldier

Love the Core

Blessed are the men

Who never ask for more♫♫?

 

The void creates madness to the weak and and arrogant ones..

Air and Space Museum (Video Blog) Part 1 K.G. Bethlehem’s version

 

“The absent of mind is the beginning of unbridled growth in the eternal.”

–K-Madd of Po Theory

 

This quote puts me into a place of exploration and what can spell out exploration other than the new and unknown frontier of outer space. The universe is the answer and what is fitting is to investigate a part of it on Earth. What I am talking about is the Air and Space Museum located in Dullas, VA. The hangar house over 50 airplane/jets including the space shuttle “Discovery.” I and my brother from another mother F. Kenneth Taylor visited the site and conducted several video recordings of what we saw including our personal thoughts. The enthusiasm from F. Kenneth Taylor is very honest as he severed in the Air National Guard out of Missouri in the late 90’s and early 2000’s could not camouflaged his love for aviation.

We both as Sci-Fi writers play with the mysteries of space for our own imagination and such a touch of realism is knowledge. Quite frankly this childhood wondering could rival a trip to Disney World, well in some circles of thought (which we were in of course lol). The inventions of humankind that resulted in us flying above ground, through the stars is the building blocks of a progressive society and level 1 civilization (would love to see a Level 3 but I will be far removed from this existence before we have a vast interstellar government presiding over an entire galaxy) which will work for now. Technology must be for the sustainability of life, it must be.

Exploration not colonization..

Now, with that being said enjoy the various videos throughout this post and feel free to leave a comment for this video series.  To S.U.M it all up as “Just a port of “Discovery.”
