The eventual confrontation between the Populace opposition and the Administration broke out at last on the following evening. A scout for the opposition reported fighting machines of a sleek, erect humanoid appearance without the arms and tentacles imagined by Herbert Wells*. These were manned by the towering cyclopses. Soon after the report, a team of resistance fighters emerged and headed for the location, armed with bombs.
Meanwhile, Deeva attempted to use the skirmish as a diversion to infiltrate and spy on the Administration at their base camp. She set her tracker so that her opposition allies cold follow her and hurried towards the camp. The guard on duty spotted and interviewed her.
"Who are you?"
" I am Deeva. I am from Venus."
"Venus. What do you want here?"
"That is my affair."
"I cannot allow you to enter without information."
She raised her laser and zapped him hard in the chest. He collapsed on he ground near his box

Lying half-awake in bed
The soft, tender form of my darling touching me
To my delight, the trill of the bugle
The tumult of the rifles
Had been stilled by the rain
The only sound i heard
Through the soft, quiet swish of my fan
Was the soft and silent swish of the late summer rain
I lay in bed to listen
Until 9 AM

On this fateful day, for the first time in earth history and very possibly the history of this star system, the original seven planets have formed an alliance. We call that the Federation of Stars. Together we shall monitor all activity, whether lawful or otherwise, that occurs in our jurisdiction. The earth's atmosphere is approaching high toxicity and that means that we humans may need to migrate to other stars which may have our needs. Our scientists have observed that Venus and Mars have similar surfaces. Atmospheric scientists are working fast to render Venusian air breathable.
As for Mars, a civil war has broken out. The planet's administration is in dispute with civilians and we await news of the climax. You are advised to keep in contact with us for more details.
Two earth days prior to the aforementioned event, the civil war on Mars had erupted. Two sides had evolved from the skirmish, namely Administration and Populace. The former consisted of t
Burn it downCome on lets start a fire
And burn this mess to the ground
Blow away the ashes
And never turn back around.
Forget where we come from
Start our path anew
Ignore our pain and issues
With a life all renewed.
I cant really say I care
About excuses the world has to give
No more justifications

And dance all through the night
Let’s paint the down red
And drive off out of sight.
Who cares what was done or said
No tears and no regrets
Lets go and see the world
Until its easy to forget
Come on I have the matches
The show promises to astound
We’ll add flame to our madness
Sanctuary in Flames
I’m barefoot again, toes curling in the soft grass as I watch the night rise, waiting for the light show. The stars here shine brighter than I’ve ever seen, and sometimes the sky is streaked with ribbons of sea green and violet. It’s the Northern Lights, I think. Whatever it is, it’s truly breathtaking. Colors swirling slowly like an acid trip galaxy, I can’t help but stare. This place is unbelievable.
With a chuckle I wonder if I’m on another planet.
I take slow steps into the yard, it’s warm tonight and I’m feeling lazy. Plopping down in an Adirondack chair I give a small wave to Andy and he’s scowling, having spotted the bottle of wine in my hands.
“I’ll share,” I offer even though I know he doesn’t drink, at least not while he’s working.
He sighs and leans back into his chair staring out into the horizon. I’m surprised that he doesn’t speak; I thought for sure he’d object.
