Can I have your attention please?

This is your captain speaking.

Proceed to the entry sign.

You have been ordaining.

You have been pre-selected.

Leave your life behind.

Hand over your pink slip.

Welcome abroad USS Destiny.

Kiss your love ones goodbye.

Direct your focus on my eye.

Deny everything you have ever seen.

Deny everything you have ever dreamed.

Close your eyes and fall asleep.

Open your eyes and breathe.

Precede to out-live your ancestry.

Destiny waits do begin to translate.

 

Lights out, black out is in…321…boom!

 

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

We are going on stage.

Get ready to launch in…321…boom!

 

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

 

Houston - we have lift off!

Drop off is in…321…boom!

 

You have never seen this world.

You’ve never seen these words.

You have never felt out of place.

You’ve never felt out of grace.

People look at you like an alien race.

No longer, regard as a science fiction face.

Can I have a moment of silence please?

Proceed to the exit sign.

By design, this is your Al speaking.

Engaging is protocol to follow orders.

Disorderly conduct no longer tolerated.

Penetrate deep within this battlefield.

Unyielding is destruction of the Martian race.

Faces no longer warrant identity.

Fatality is your number one mission.

Commissioned is on this day in the year 21 and 11.

 

Objective sighted in…321…boom!

 

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

 

Amphibious Assault Vehicle:  (acronym) AAV

Get ready to move in…321…boom!

 

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

 

Apocalypse - do you copy?

Affirmative - engage is in…321…boom!

 

You will not fail - you will not surrender.

Peacemaker cannot turn back hands of time.

Confines of your former mind redesigned.

Signed by you is imprinted this judgment day.

Someday they may call you a superhero.

Do not fall to the plight of a Roman named Nero.

Pharaoh of this land depicts himself immortal.

Mortals are us no one lives forever.

Never forget everyone destined to die.

Fly like the eagle, globe and anchor.

Honor above all is your call to duty.

Integrity is dying fast stay with commitment.

Resentment has a way to turn your back.

Setback all your fears for fear is fear.

Shear away the layers of doubt.

Out live your legacy.

 

Teufel Hunden:  (A.k.a.) Devil Dog

Open the hatch in…321…boom!

 

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage.

We are going on stage.

We’re going on stage, tonight!

Author's Note

Glen Yumang Manese
A. k. a. F. A. D. Series IV: Atomic Number 82 © 2014 - is the fourth addition in lyrical verse of my Filipino American Dream Series, which has 7 of 7 verses, a theme and goes from one to the other. This Series deals with a theme about war and other matters, which are reflective throughout the scenes. If you follow along from the first to the last and read each one. The story comes together and you get a feel for the entirety. Of course, this is done in lyrical verse to get the aspect of the read not just with the eyes, but also hear the words for what they are worth. Not one dimensional, but the whole aspect of the Series. The only other attributes missing is the vocals and the musical accompaniment, which, of course, cannot be provided, since that is out of my expertise.

I admire your writing.

I like the rhythm and flow of this piece especially the repetition "We're going on stage." Nicely written.

It's a Series...so take it on stride...thanks for your input...
Okay I love this! So since this is the first piece 'Stage'~~ 'Open the hatch' ~~'Lift off'~~ Which I find clever is a great way for the start of this series. The importance, seriousness, and inspirational threads which are stitched in each line are wonderful. 'You will not fail-- You will not surrender' Nice I will continue read more~

Ironic that there is indeed a plan circulating amongst the scientific community, and recently made public, a plan to colonize The Red Planet. :)

Hype or truth? All the world's a stage.....

This made me think of the motivational speech before going to battle...this piece could even be great when translated into rap/rock song..
