Systems Green

“They say it’s just a time machine, but we believe it can do more, much more. Rule the hearts of man it can and the ancients believe it to be a record….” Sam whispered “not like any record I’ve seen, it’s a disc alright but it’s too small and too silver, I don’t think these ‘ancients’ ever played vinyl” added Whippet before Dave alerted them to an imminent danger “ We’ve sneaked a peak, now lets get out before it blows!”

Blown from the future into the past and back into beyond where they called home the three humans had become known as ‘Voodoo Kings’. ‘Kings’ related to a rhythm they made into a hypnotising sound wave and ‘Voodoo’ was a dancing spirit that weaved a vibe through the rhythm and entered the human soul and made the coldest heart feel the warmth of a solar flare.

One day on Earth there was a sonic boom and the Voodoo Kings found themselves a dimension away while all humans heard the boom and felt the earth beneath them move. While the Voodoo Kings assessed their new surroundings in space the atmosphere on Earth became static and silence deafened to the living roots.

“Its green plasma” Dave looked at the shell of their travelling hull of a cell, “I think it’s more ethereal” Sam mused, “ whadya reckon Whip?”… “It’s not as good as ‘The Dive’ is it… I wonder what ‘Systems Green’ means?” A floating hologram of a box projecting images from black and white film to ‘Avatar’ and sounds from the World’s radio stations from all eras exploded into life. The box marked ‘Systems green’ stayed in the un-blinking stare of Whippets eyes, he lowered the brim of his cap to avert the glare.

Through a green fog a sudden knowing arrived to the Voodoo kings. Sam stood up and said “They say it’s just a time machine……” “It’s about to explode!” The switch was on the box marked ‘Systems Green’….It had to be now or never… The sensation was like nothing on Earth, but was this Earth?

A green twilight marked the dawn of the arrival in time from space. The Voodoo Kings had a vibe to share with their fellow inhabitants of this planet…..and a small silver disc they stole.
