Panic on earth

Dr. T. Pinnock 1962 (Hartford, Ct)

“Panic on earth, Mans finally Almost out of food and fuel this is a perfect opportunity to destroy them, Master what are you waiting for.”
From the darkness of space, a spacecraft descended. With all their war equipment to take over the earth. Other spacecraft surrounded the earth. Earthlings busy in their own wars weren’t ready to defend themselves from attack from outside forces. They didn’t know what they were up against.
The war began. Blood covered the earth from their fighting. Earth could not get its people united to fight against the spacecraft. Russia and U.S. thought it was an invasion from each other. They were arguing among themselves, while they were about to lose their planet. There was no food as all the animals had been killed and the waters were polluted. Earth was moving farther away from the sun and growing colder. People were freezing to death because there was no fuel source. The invaders did nothing for they didn’t have to, man was helping to destroy themselves. The earth was in deep trouble, wars between themselves and others they didn’t even know about.
The Earthlings finally woke up and realized there was something happening to them. They got their power together and joined hands. Then the war really began. The spacecraft attacked everywhere, people were dying every half second. Still, the earthlings kept on fighting. The invaders offered them their lives, food to eat, fuel for heat all the things they needed they could have as long as they would stop fighting. Still, the earthlings kept on fighting and dying. Until one day when one of the spacecraft power packs blew up causing all the rest to blow up with it.
Man was saved. And then the earth was destroyed by the atom bomb when its computer malfunctioned, man destroyed with his own weapon and the Master and I had laughter in our eyes.

Dr. T. Pinnock

Dr. Pinnock first wrote poetry in the institution he resided in inside a classroom at 8 years old. The typewriter was old and manual with a keyguard. A keyguard is a device with an opening for each key to prevent a person lacking fine motor skills from accidentally hitting a key. Dr. Pinnock was granted permission to use the class alone. He labored there typing for hours ignoring his cerebral palsy. Dr. Pinnock grew up with his family until August of 1970. Poverty forced his parents to make him a ward of the State of Connecticut. more…
