Life Or Death?

Metallic wires of light,
Slither across the lawn
Climbs like ivy, the house,
It's trellis.

Metallic wires of light
Pry open a window
Encase everything in a web
We, the prey.
They, the spider.

Golden waves of warmth
Wash over the planet.
The metallic wires of light,
Shy as they are,
Glide away to torture
The unseen half.

Golden waves of warmth
Melt the sticky web
Enshrouding everyone in gold
Eyes will open.
Smiles will widen.
We, the children,
Have survived another death threat.
