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:

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!

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.
