Dreaded!

The moment he had dreaded being back

from six months tour of duty

though it had been hard felt more secure

with comrades on the battleground

was privy to information aliens were here

infiltrating his country’s population

numbers critical certain an invasion force

intel received from reliable source!

 

The harsh reality it was his own home city

where the largest concentration

had been recently reported was assigned

to a covert unit to seek and destroy

soon would be engaged in the campaign

as it was humanities survival

this would spiral into a deadly final clash

when forever into oblivion crash!

 

One fact was hard to swallow identification

until now was impossible to detect

fully integrating with the human population

their DNA sequence almost matching

being why there had been no prior warning

of the extent of the quiet invasion

as this species not part of the known races

stored in the classified data bases!

 

The military units were based in a school

on the edge of the city limit

they waited for their direct orders to enter

each issued with special goggles

told the only way you could tell the enemy

adding to the dangerous mission

within hours planes arrived for air support

their objective this enemy to thwart!

 

Had little time for any apprehension to build

explosions shook their positions

aliens had made the first devastating strike

with their advanced technology

the orders came swiftly now no turning back

into a war with a devious foe

a vicious enemy had never before engaged

or on such a theatre of war waged!

 

With their added vision they could identify

the shape shifter’s real form

adding to the raging fires and total carnage

his team were slaughtered

disintegrating into dust as they charged

his mind focused on his family

safe in one of the underground fortifications

hidden below the cities foundations!

 

He did not look back as into the abyss he went!

Unseen!

Is there a malicious unseen agenda

that does not want unity

where humanity would join as one

instead of our destruction

intent on fanning the flames of hate

when people want to debate!

 

Dividing the masses for the privileged

creating fear and mistrust

taking us away from a righteous path

into the depraved depths

when we know not what is happening

a scenario for many baffling!

 

Death and chaos is a daily occurrence

the threat of total anarchy

your neighbours and friends the foe

everybody filled with mistrust

as understanding slips into that abyss

hope evermore we shall miss!

 

Or is the turmoil part of an ongoing plan?

 

The Foureyed Poet.

Before The Nation!

Before the nation many have volunteered

to join military forces

fighting for Queen and country in wars

proud to serve until death

facing many different enemies they went

with honour and good intent!

 

Politicians controlled them like chess pawns

dispensable in action

no thought for precious loyal fighting men

serving in appalling conditions

families waiting in constant concern at home

as into the abyss they roam!

 

There with comrades violence all around

often with devastating odds

campaigns of battle rage on into infinity

ravaging the once innocent

becoming oblivious in time to the carnage

as the spirit fills with rage!

 

Exhausted their courage can never be denied

against all odds heads held high with pride!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

 

 

 

Coffins!

On the white sandy beach early one morning

a jogger was surprised

to see a dark wood coffin as the tide receded

chains wrapped around

something held him back from treading near

instinct made him stay clear!

 

A mile down the coast two more coffins found

in exactly the same state

this time discovered by a group of teenagers

on the beach for a party

one brave lad did venture close captivated

and his life deactivated!

 

As they ran terrified from the empty beach

out at sea a fishing fleet

were pulling in their nets and caught within

dozens of similar coffins

fell heavily onto the wet and slippery decks

crews left shocked and vexed!

 

The fishing village was where they were taken

now unloaded on the quay

coffins replacing the usually fresh fish catch

as the locals stood sombre

deeply religious and superstitious community

together proud of their unity!

 

The elders were not surprised at this activity

as it was their ancestors

who had disposed of these now rotting coffins

throwing them into the sea

hundreds of miles away into the deepest abyss

now their existence was amiss!

 

Three hundred years before they were captured

a cult thought of as vampires

forced into these coffins blessed by the priest

weakened were trapped inside

crosses nailed to the lids then bound in chains

in salt water through their remains!

 

But as each was dropped screamed out the curse

future descendants would pay

they would return to seek bloody retribution

that day of prophecy had come

only if  one opened by an original kin villager

could this awful event occur!

 

There were recorded to be one hundred coffins

but on counting only ninety-nine

frantically a massive search hurriedly instigated

yet it was fruitless it was not there

outside of the village a local teenager unaware

of events towards the sea did stare!

 

Could not believe there lay a coffin on the sand

went closer to get a better view

for some reason was not harmed then a voice

in his head told remove the lid

as if compelled went home to get some tools

soon to break ancient rules!

 

As he snapped the locks unwinding the chains

forcing the thick sodden lid off

a decaying creature ravished on his blood

re-animating her back to life

now the long-awaited massacre was assured

the queens power restored!

 

At the exact moment each one sensed danger

instinct of death coming near

each coffin the chains shattered and opened

the one hundred had returned

the vampire queen walked amongst the risen

the kill executed with precision!

 

Some villagers escaped a new breed of slayer born!
