Operation Restore Hope This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   "Darkness was upon the face of the deep."

The interlopers broke the surf, climbed the steep.

The amphibians lurched across the dark sand.

Unseen they swarmed, unheard they advanced.

They were deliverers. They crept across the black expanse,

Creatures of the sea moving into empty, shattered land.

Shadowed figures waited as the Marines

Guided their righteous, metal-turtle machines.

The ambush exploded: Camera-flashes ignited

Floodlights drenched the invasion in truth -

Light. The "forces of good," once so paradoxically

Hidden, lost their shield of mystery. The Zeit-

Geist proclaimed "The people who walked in darkness have seen

a great light."
