Split Second!

In a split second there had been an explosion

here he stood on the edge of a drop

his office had just disintegrated where he sat

no warning of the impending disaster

fire a major hazard as he struggled to survive

hoping his world would not crash dive!

 

There had been several loud explosions within

yet as he desperately searched

to reach the emergency exits heard the noise

saw helicopters with no insignia

hovering as if observing the carnage unfold

the event planned and controlled!

 

He had not heard of any warnings of an attack

as the smoke and dust billowed

becoming hard to breath in these toxic fumes

vision was limited as at last

headed down the stairwell of the office block

another explosion made it rock!

 

Fire rescue met the small group he had joined

in their long perilous descent

from ninetieth level to the upper ground floor

fearing they would not make it

with help made their way to a triage base unit

where traumatized could sit!

 

Heard the emergency services discussing openly

the destruction that surrounded

the once large commercial and banking complex

some said they had seen missiles

others certain military type unmarked aircraft

facts withheld as news was broadcast!

 

Though the official line was terrorist aggression

a unified statement was issued

with film of planes melting like butter into steel

such loss of life everything changed

conflicts division misery and terror zoomed

technology in our lives mushroomed!

 

Truth had no meaning anymore as advertising

through every electronic outlet

guided our way of thinking in certain directions

we believed what they wanted

as evil could be peddled on a massive world stage

emotions easily raised to hatred and rage!

 

That young businessman delved into what occurred

never any history of depression

his mind opened to secret societies and practices

just wanting the truth and honesty

ten years after that apocalyptic event he was dead

depressed could not face life it was said!

 

What transpired did he find out more than he should!

 

Is this another conspiracy theory?

Extras!

Extras! The silent minority!#TheFoureyedPoet.

The Foureyed Poet

Are we noticed as we stand or linger

maybe sit or walk about

a flash a blur or going on a specific line

quiet not allowed to shout

unless it is a crowd or part of a scene

extras not meant to be seen

from mighty block busters that thrill

or unknown shows hardly viewed

often forgotten but wait with goodwill

eager and ready to go on cue

spending their days waiting around

for assistant directors command

not always being treated very well

classed as the lowest of the low

under a tyrants rule being given hell

occasionally a walk on part to glow

the silent minority there to support

but too often were sold short!

Had been an extra for more than ten years

sometimes felt part of the production

too often made to feel inferior no respect

one rule not to outshine the stars

fill the background and…

Three Lights!

There was a gasp from a small group walking

ahead as he talked to his girlfriend

they saw up into the darkening starlit sky

could see three lights moving in unison

also a silhouette of a large triangular outline

nothing earth like did they align!

 

People came to a halt as everybody stared

then small craft lit up as if an escort

the mood altered to unease as it progressed

soon silently heading out over the sea

the small objects darting about at high-speed

was this a prior warning to heed?

 

A lot took photos and recorded on their phones

gathered in groups watching lights

that vanished in an instant before their eyes

not expecting another huge triangle

towards their vantage point it was heading

what was coming fear was spreading!

 

Then from the depths many more object came

within the triangles each entered

was this the invasion predicted in many films

as the eyes of the world focused

on this night news outlets reported this event

what beings were coming us to torment?

 

But almost immediately the images removed

newscasters stating it was an exercise

balloons flares and planes just misconstrued

there was no need for any consternation

any truth removed from the populations gaze

trapped in a mind controlled maze!

Text Message!

A text message was sent to his cell phone

warning him to go to an address

who had sent it nobody knew the number

this was for special business

as an undercover detective had to be wary

this assignment it was scary!

 

Taking precautions headed to the location

even though it could be a trap

had an informant who had not contacted

for a few months it was his style

the block of flats on a rough estate loomed

amongst shabby houses was marooned!

 

Parked amongst vandalised cars and trash

smelt that stench of cultivated weed

as he headed for the entrance to slum block

knew it was a gang base by the tags

another message made him miss a beat

started to sweat feeling the heat!

 

It read third floor num thirteen take stairs

security door was not locked

certain nobody was following sprinted

up those four flights of stairs

entered the small lobby spotting a man

this was where the nightmare began!

 

Saw the flash of a gun firing at his head

ducked it missed by a hairs width

charged head butting the thug his fist

completing his incapacitation

inside the flat other voices could be heard

the action soon became blurred!

 

Instinct took over as it seemed like an army

rushed out had to use his training

and wits to overcome overwhelming odds

glad he had his trusty police baton

it did the damage until he could grab a gun

entering hoped the fighting was done!

 

Saw it was his criminal informant sitting

bruised and battered in the kitchen

still with a cell phone clasped in his hand

before he could utter a word

they were heading for the ground floor

as more burst through a glass door!

 

Quickly reversed their exit to the balcony

found themselves looking down

four floors also s  burnt out van well placed

no time to think both jumped

to a hail of automatic fire as they collided

on metal somehow were safely guided!

 

Managed to get in his car his companion hit

just getting away but soon pursued

speeding through unfamiliar back streets

eventually able to contact back up

the assailants were beginning to draw near

down a familiar road was able to steer!

 

For the moment they had shaken pursuers

and drove onto headquarters

on his radio heard there was a gun battle

glad they had got clear of trouble

inside was able to know what had gone on

it was a sting that had gone wrong!

 

The informant had bypassed him this time

nearly paying with both their lives

but through the carnage a big drug haul

confiscated and gang caught

the adrenaline rush had still not subsided

but it had been an adventure decided!

Exhausted!

Exhausted had been a long day but not over

headed towards the second job

riding his old bike hoped it would not fail

as the rain-soaked him again

a white SUV gleaming in the street lights

pulled up beside him at a junction

the couple inside covered in bling smiling

him a source of fun providing!

 

Road clear shot away throwing up spray

it was then the distants felt

between those who had so much wealth

with those who struggled

never enough money to pay bills and eat

always on the news channels

the sportsman television and film stars

with luxury homes expensive cars!

 

Boasting of endless trips in private jets

politicians rich but taxpayers

subsidised their expenses and salaries

as they struggled to even exist

certainly not a new concept always been

those without helping the rich

controlling the masses keeping them poor

of their position always cocksure!

 

Society heads into an unpredictable future

with countless variables of surviving

what is the reality behind the smoke screen

the untold truth we shall never know

as the one percent amass ever rising wealth

where do the majority fit in

with plans of a new order where robotics rule

are we not being treated as the Fool?

 

Could this be true? Or a conspiracy theory?

Here!

Would never have taken the security post

had he known it was here

filling his vision the abandoned prison

dwarfed his six feet six frame

a history of brutality suicides executions

determined to fulfill his obligations

be rational inside the grim condemned wing

hoped the job no nasty surprises bring!

 

First shift was with a senior security officer

took him around the eery buildings

favored by paranormal groups to investigate

where its said the prisoners roamed

though long dead had departed life violently

their souls unable to rest or pass on

prison guards also within here had perished

their memory deeply cherished!

 

As he toured told of the long paranormal past

the gates now no longer locked

left open eerily quiet their footsteps echoed

on the dusty concrete floor

the power was turned off had to use torches

in a harsh and sparse interior

though in ghosts not sure whether to believe

soon different ideas would conceive!

 

The moment had arrived his first lone patrol

part of his work to keep away

anybody interfering with any investigations

mostly in the buildings alone

had that intense awareness of somebody near

tried but unable to shake it off

heard what may have been a banging  cell door

and shouting voices but not sure!

 

This before the group had even arrived here

really dark and cold at any time

needed the money had to man up he thought

took a deep breath passing through

cells where he knew there had been a murder

could feel depression and fear

glad to be back in the security office satisfied

had confronted the dread deep inside!

 

As a child saw what he thought was a monster

inside his house while playing

just appeared from nowhere ran crying to mum

but nothing was found on searching

parents put it down to a young child’s imagination

not believing him was a life long frustration!

 

Through to his adulthood felt it had followed him

so here he was to face his demon

had told nobody not even his wife nor friends

as the months went by more confident

it was nothing and for all those years allowed

that memory to interfere with living

until that shift brought his reality to a conclusion

there was no longer confusion!

 

Fortunate that he had befriended a psychic medium

there for an event had gone with him

on his rounds and felt there was a violent entity

moving around as a blow hit him

she saw a blurry shape pass through him in a second

he staggered out followed by a loud grunt

she too was shaken and surprised at this experience

at this totally unexpected interference!

 

Now he was not alone at last somebody understood

after that trauma during his childhood

yet was it the same entity that had scared him so

this was the next step he now had to know!

Divided!

Born in the small town then a community

equality part of daily routine

violence the occasional drunken brawl

or disgruntled married couples

no threats to walk out any time alone

or thought of a home invasion

robbed and attacked by masked raiders

these criminal inside traders!

 

Now not safe even within your own home

little protection by the law

bad guys have a free access to our lives

fraud is a profitable sport

workers have their money taken in taxes

with less rights than perpetrators

as law and order for most has fallen apart

corruption is off the statistic chart!

 

Those open integrated communities absent

gangs have divided and destroyed

where families struggle to leave so scared

no entry areas you now fear to tread

murders of the young and those foolish to go

many that used to serve and protect

often avoid these volatile flash points of doom

where the evil predators loom!

 

Do you know what is happening around you

the once thriving shopping centres

businesses closing down charity shops rule

more sleeping rough begging

who once had homes with a future and hope

as drunks increase with intent

vandalising and fighting no purpose anymore

helplessly we watch and deplore!

 

Once small familiar peaceful neighbourhoods

are now part of historical records

as the shape of things to come are not good

where we are guided to believe

life will be better in this materialistic society

where most are in debt to the few

who can be trusted surely we are manipulated

and every aspect of life infiltrated!

Machines!

He sat in front of the laptop with uncertainty

what could be true anymore

artificial intelligence was taking over humanity

who actually was now in charge

on your smart phone the voices were not real

though it was impossible to tell

they could perfectly mimic anything at all

how long before mankind would fall?

 

No more the films of the over throw by machines

developed by humans themselves

excitedly creating at a ferocious rate robots

to rule our life support and services

realistic like us they were created in our image

smarter faster where did we fit in

the technology became too much for mankind

so a quantum computer was assigned!

 

Transport was fully automatic even our aircraft

had no use for human hands

they could think far smarter and indestructible

the population relied completely

on the machines as the frustration rapidly grew

unrest exploded then robotic cops

deployed and the resistants and wars escalated

with no democracy for it to be debated!

 

How close are we today to such a future existence

as our lives are run by the machines

for now they maybe an asset that we just accept

but they know where we live

what we are saying doing and most likely think

privacy and security from them

has long gone from a once more free civilisation

controlled can there be any salvation?

 

Its said the future is not set and could be changed

but what protection from the deranged?

A Happy New Year!

A throbbing head wondering where you are

in need of pain killers remembered

its New Years day everything looks bleak

this not being a good start

how cold and damp where you had laid

lifting your head nerves frayed!

 

Glancing about there in the morning air

several others besides yourself

an awful smell of booze and stale vomit

makes your stomach churn

rising with pain onto your wobbly legs

bottle in hand with a few dregs!

 

Swigging that down making you feel worse

focusing your tired blurry eyes

trying to rouse those prone on the ground

recognising some many no idea

a girl looked familiar an awful flash back

had he proposed not the right tack!

 

Dishevelled as if engaged in an altercation

on rubbery limbs they stood up

noticing there was garbage everywhere

was it near their last destination

each still under the influence of all the drink

guided them he hoped to a taxi link!

 

Unable to remember anything of the past night

as the frost began to bite

a strange red sky greeted the weary band

as they walked in the wasteland

welcoming in another bloody new year

longing for more spirits and beer!

 

The time approaches 2018!

 

TheFoureyedPoet.

 

Blindly!

Standing on the roadside watching

endless traffic like a blur

though their minds are out of sync

going blindly towards oblivion

without thought of consequences

or actions to any other lives

just no one else to them mattered

nor whose existence battered!

 

Acting in their vehicles as if reflecting

the way humans interact

cannot stop them their needs rule

priority is for themselves

why buy easier to take from others

violence is an acceptable factor

empathy to them a sign of weakness

always be tough no meekness!

 

Dominate the weak care not how they live

just as long as you are alright

surge on with no thought lie steal cheat

pollute why protect this habitat

feeling protected in their own metal box

their territory within untouched

the masses live in a fabricated environment

where only the selected are content!
