The Detour!

The Detour arrow lights flashed on and off

as the car hurtled towards it

three desperate criminals intent on escape

behind the police converged

the stolen car swerved onto a quarry track

for them no turning back!

 

Bouncing violently on the potholed surface

constantly glancing behind

checking the progress of their law hunters

surprised when they halted

no longer in pursuit they heartily cheered

as the driver oversteered!

 

Finding themselves rolling over several times

coming to rest on its roof

shaken and bruised they crawled from the car

seconds later it exploded

all they could do was reassess the conditions

and their precarious positions!

 

Pitch black isolated looking at distant blue lights

uncertain what was unfolding

confused as to why nobody would venture near

through woods blundered forth

no longer confident or with arrogant contempt

for some reason now exempt!

 

Exposure and shock added to their condition

ever the sense of a presence

movement and snapping of fallen branches

unfamiliar sounds circled them

still having guns fired wildly into emptiness

no more could they careless!

 

Panicking headed away from the tree line

yet knew something roamed

tired sat to rest but huge shadows hovered

like phantoms homing in

began to feel trapped with no place to run

shattered their resistance done!

 

Then realised they were poised on the edge

of a what seemed like a quarry

rocks crumbling under their body weight

and the phantoms converging

fell backwards their screams reverberating

the following silence intoxicating!

 

The law enforcement agencies went in at dawn

to recover the bodies

nobody dared enter at night it was dangerous

this was a long cursed spot

where many unexplained deaths had transpired

and normal reality expired!

No Prying Eyes!

Unseen by any members of the populace

each placed in isolated areas

excluded from prying eyes even in the air

nobody hindered their covert tasks

nothing spawned would benefit mankind

explicitly for destruction designed!

 

Who knows the whole truth of the damage

of man-made monsters created

too focused on their efforts of superiority

over another super power

all in the name of defence of their nation

never giving any explanation!

 

Dark secrets hidden so close to the population

risks carried out on a whim

adventure for high-ranking unknown personnel

always gambling with death

chances taken without care of the outcome

makes the future look glum!

 

How many of these secret bases actually exist

that governments deny are there

treating people with disrespect and contempt

buildings weapons out of control

with a total disregard for the blunders made

the reaper waits with a sharpened blade!
