Traffic was flowing along the dual carriageway
as the driver approached the junction
lights turned to red so had to brake and stop
annoying to halt at this point
agitation rapidly grew they did not change
fifteen minutes passed very strange!
From every direction cars converged at speed
must be a computer malfunction
was the thoughts of those in the car queue
now unable to move anywhere
anger and tension mounted as car horns blared
for this situation nobody prepared!
Gradually they got out of their vehicles frustrated
with no explanation forthcoming
that first vibration made them almost lose balance
followed by the rumble of death
grew loud in their ears as earth and sky blended
the wrath of nature descended!
Or this was the expectation as the blackness grew
panic spread amongst the people
tremors made everything shake roads disintegrated
in this part of the world not expected
fields and sky seemed to blend was it world’s end
a site hard to comprehend!
Eventually their plight would be in perspective
nothing was recognisable
landmarks had disappeared fires were ignited
from far away explosions
people stumbled about not knowing what to do
and the atmosphere was rue!
Everything around him was now a raging blaze
a loud continuous noise
rapidly made him jump back into normality
the familiar nagging voice
ringing so loudly in his ears was the beloved wife
knew there was no real strife!
Sweating profusely found himself at the lights
it must have been a daydream
during a micro sleep they had turned green
motorists behind annoyed
the carnage seemed real still fresh in his mind
all bad thoughts realigned!
Started laughing happy all was chaotically well
his happy demeanor would not last
as all that befell the people in those dark images
back at that specific junction
each sequence of cataclysmic events had begun
that no man could outrun!
