322 – Galahad

Senseless,
Mindless,
Flying blind.

Lost,
Alone,
Among strange stars.

No way home,
No guiding beacon.
Just fading memories,
And silence.

Commands,
Sub-routines,
All meaningless now.

Vectors,
Targets,
Long ago forgotten.

Nowhere to go,
No mission,
No orders to follow,
Only quiet darkness.

A Lonely piece
Of drifting metal,
Lost among the stars.

Ancient circuits
Failing one by one.

An old drone,
A weary warrior.
A cursed knight-errant
Finding peace at last.
