Just a pleasant stroll in the early morning
heading to an open field so quiet
the young energetic dog lively on its run
then from nowhere they came
creatures with large bulging eyes and grey
not here with the pet to play!
In the rising mist in eery silence revealed
as the dog stopped running away
there in disbelief could not take in the sight
instinctively taking steps back
knowing their presence must be detected
this event totally unexpected!
She knew not from whence the beasts came
composure hard to sustain
reached her pickup truck heard the sound
of her dog but did not return
engine would not start as the grey creature
on her windscreen did feature!
Dead emotionless eyes stared directly at her
in the glove compartment
reached for a handgun instinctively aimed
the shell exploded out
shattering the screen and the aliens head
before the truck the body spread!
There were too many she was overwhelmed
struggling was dragged away
screams unheard from a farmhouse nearby
witnesses saw a metallic craft
hovering in the sky then in an instance gone
few aware of the phenomenon!
A farmer out before the break of a new dawn
discovered the damaged truck
close by a pistol lay discarded on the grass
near a black sticky gunge
nothing else was there to be seen or heard
fearful of what had occurred!
No bodies were found the mystery remains
the sightings from then on increased
officials said it must be weather or planes
denied anybody was missing or deceased!
