Overlord


After the initial assessment
Now came the hardest part:
The cleansing team came in
Ready to make the start.
Emotions suppressed by
Steely determination
Needed in this process
Of selective elimination.
A project left unsupervised
For far far too long
A world in peril as things had
Gone more and more wrong,

As these things if unwatched
So very easily can,
A single species upsetting
Their once balanced plan.
The pandemic loosed,
The readjustment
Now set under way
The planet too far gone
To brook any delay.
The observers quietly watching,
As per their instruction,
In the hope of progress to avoid
A whole species destruction.

Sometimes, the Overlords hoped
they'd not need this last resource
And  the experiment would slowly
Get back on its proper course.
The last time this had happened,
And the plan had been broken,
They'd left a rainbow in the sky
As a warning and a token.
A different circumstance this time
But still a hope for a new beginning.
A final final last chance, for,
In truth, their patience was thinning
