Contagious (an acrostic poem)

Coughing unleashed the invading fleet into open space

Outbound they honed in on their target

Nearing insertion they began to establish a beachhead

The defenders began to rally, but initially their attempts were repulsed

As the invaders worked their way deeper into enemy territory

Gains came at a cost as the defenders began to rally

Increasing loses piled up as the invaders lost ground

Orders to retreat passed thorough the remaining invaders

Under extreme pressure the invaders began their exit strategy

Soon a another cough sent the survivors onto another battle
