They Moved the Moon



That was the title of a Warren Zevon song, written in 1989. Warren said he wrote it after having a dream that it had actually happened.

Well, Warren, I had the same dream twenty-five years before you did!

In my dream, I was staring at an unusually bright full moon, and I began feeling uneasy as La Luna seemed to be growing larger by the minute!

Then I began to make out several pinpoints of light, either side of the giant moon! The moon and those points of light kept coming closer!

I soon realised the points of light were actually alien spaceships, which were guiding the moon, somehow, ever closer to a catastrophic collision with Earth!

I looked around to see everyone else jumping into cars, or just running, trying to flee the impending disaster!

I remember thinking: Why are they running? Where can they go? If our planet is doomed, we'll all share the same fate!

I awoke from my dream with a pounding heart! It all seemed so real! The most vivid dream of my entire life!

The spectre of that giant moon haunted my mind for several weeks!

I must have had a heavy supper that night!
