Imposing!

It had an imposing image for a new hospital

though in developement accidents

during construction of the district infirmary

even on its opening day

injuries caused by more structural damage

was annoying at this stage!

 

Nothing would get in the way of the progress

prestige pride most of all money

forced the building on no matter the sacrifice

only a few knew the real truth

how it was pushed through breaking the law

not for a second did they pause!

 

The land was not of a suitable consistency

as beneath it had been excavated

some years before an object was retrieved

quickly by an unknown group

who arrived rapidly taking it from the site

in the middle of a summer’s night!

 

Locals were never informed of what it was

or who had whisked it away

rumours of an alien craft and high radiation

were never answered

it had always had a mystical evil reputation

and a strong feeling of intimidation!

 

Nobody would go near the open land in fear

so it caused a huge debate

when the new hospital was then approved

now the day was finally here

its doors were opened and with trepidation

entered with a nervous hesitation!

 

Impressed by the splendour they gathered

in the huge entrance lobby

the medical director was on a raised podium

cynically smiling at them

the commotion was faint at first few heard

soon none could hear a word!

 

Staff not at the opening started shouting

as if warning of danger

screams became shrill as the groups met

mayhem rapidly ensued

creatures like large moths were overhead

swooping as people fled!

 

Grabbing anybody with their long claws

taking them up high

dropping them on to the polished floor

crashing onto the crowd

those who could get out were attacked

beasts with weapons hacked!

 

From the grounds other snake-like things

slid towards those trapped

senior directors tried to make a getaway

found there was no escape

with so many of the dignitaries present

were hell bound sent!

 

As it had begun it ended the beasts vanished

leaving devastation behind

everyone concerned with its creation had gone

the hospital was unsafe

those still alive got away never to return here

a supernatural power involved clear!

 

It now stands abandoned a reminder of events

a grotesque cursed building

that only the foolish would even contemplate

approaching let alone enter

strange sightings and weird sounds reported

sceptics say natural sounds distorted!

 

No explanation for the events have been given

for investigators their curiosity is driven!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

Summer Of Sixty One!

Rain had been forecast for the whole area

being a mountainous region

it was a guaranteed regular occurrence

their nearest neighbours

lived two miles down an old wagon trail

the ecology here frail!

 

As the light faded the animals under cover

on the small sheep farm

those distant rumbles of thunder heard

and streaks of lightning

it was late summer of nineteen sixty-one

the days work was done.

 

The family sat down for their evening meal

there were two children

a son Max of twelve and a daughter of six

who was named Jade

they were happy but becoming agitated

their fear more elevated!

 

For many years there had been lots of cases

of animal mutilations

even two of their own sheep and neighbours

stories of UFO’s often seen

and unknown creatures in the woods and hills

given everyone the chills!

 

What was going to happen next the question

that would soon be apparent

the children were never allowed to go far

though Jade was a lot younger

her brother Max loved his sister they got on

their bond truly strong!

 

On this night the storm skirted around them

their faithful pet and guard dog

sat quietly on the porch as they went to bed

early starts the routine

it seemed a quiet night very warm and dank

but eventually to sleep sank!

 

The dog was aroused from his rest around two

his long ears pricked up

an inaudible noise alerting his sensitive hearing

from the trees a gleaming light

slowly descended landing onto soft damp ground

without making any sound!

 

Then small beings came from within its interior

through a bluish haze

stood as if waiting two approached the main door

soon Jade came out

between the two went to the craft as if in a trance

instantly did advance!

 

At this point Max opened the window being alerted

to see the event happening

ran down the stairs in a panic and spiraling dread

outside watched it take off

the dog howled he loudly shouted felt helpless

in himself emotionally feckless!

 

Soon he was joined by their distraught parents

totally unable to comprehend

their first reaction was to frantically question

staring into the cloudy sky

he had the impression they both blamed him

heartbroken knew the future dim!

 

Now sixty-four sat on the porch of the same house

reflecting that dreadful night

his parents long dead did not recover from the loss

life was hard from then on

his sister was never seen again his guilt remained

still himself he blamed!

 

There had been searches police saturated the area

months passed rumours grew

the family was accused of killing their daughter

nobody really believed the truth

on his own how he prayed for Jades safe return

holding one of her toys he did so yearn!

 

Max to this very day has not given up hope!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

 

 

Base!

The soldier sat on duty in the guard hut

trying to stay awake

certainly would be in trouble if caught

this a classified base

where many strange items were stored

he was safe they assured!

 

A large object had been delivered recently

covered in tarpaulin sheets

by hooded figures in unmarked uniforms

in the night brought it in

remembering seeing lights moving about

taught not to feel doubt!

 

He knew it was another craft from the stars

this was not the first delivered

to this covert military facility hidden here

out in the barren desert

far away from the public’s inquisitive stare

and media who were well aware!

 

Alone with only his thoughts for company

daring not to speculate

what was far below the ground in storage

or the research being done

he was a private in the military police unit

to protect at all costs his remit!

 

Tonight had a gut feeling it would not be quiet

there had been much activity

preparing for the first perimeter patrol an alert

received an urgent message

on the radio the main fence had been breached

for his side arm he reached!

 

As he prepared to go the rest of the team arrived

in their pick up trucks

just as an explosion came from the base offices

that lead to the facility

glowing objects zoomed in from the dark skies

the action a complete surprise!

 

Within one minute reached the reported section

the ground on fire but no tracks

even more military personnel now assembled

word came of  ferocious action

in the huge laboratories and hangars beneath

the innocent sprawling heath!

 

As they raced towards the unknown enemy

frantic voices warned stay back

as a massive explosion ripped the site apart

brining them to sudden stop

from out of the flames pulsating  orbs flew

making a spectacular view.

 

They were not fired on which made no sense

an odd sort of alien  invasion

even though missiles were quickly deployed

though none actually hit

the soldier wondered what had just happened

was this a start or the end?

 

Instead of fighting their task became rescue

and evacuating survivors

followed by a major clamp down of the site

information was very sparse

but he heard it was a breakout from within

of creatures with grey skin!

 

What secrets was he part of hiding here

this was the first time he felt fear!

 

The Foureyed Poet

 

 

 

Clearly Visible!

None of us noticed the lights increasing

clearly visible at night

wrapped up in our own every day lives

the numbers above grew

those observing assumed stars shinning

but it clearly defining?

 

Why the military forces seemed to ignore

became a disturbing fact

soon realising they had to be totally aware

what these objects were

as usual people were told misinformation

the truth no indication!

 

You could understand not wanting to panic

most at first accepted the lies

but as the lights came closer what they were

clear for everybody to see

years of unexplained objects being denied

no longer did they hide!

 

The sky became filled with unidentified craft

not attacked as seen in films

freely flying high above as if they lived here

then the army moved in

and the society we knew changed over night

we found out our plight!

 

Small objects began to land on the ground

creatures emerged in mass

human military and leaders seemed at ease

what was going on we cried

confused and scared were told all was well

the facts now they would tell!

 

That these aliens had been here before man

living a coexistence with us

and those stories of bases seen on the moon

were true contact was made

now it was time to come from the darkness

and cooperation to caress!

 

To the now traumatized masses doubt was rife

so far no violence or threat

though dividing of the population soon began

and these aliens took control

unnerving and sinister what was under way

what future nightmares would play?

 

Strange feelings like prisoners in an open prison

we witnessed a genetic change

daily life goes on but as thousands disappear

returning acting different

or physically altered features you could see

what was our futures going to be?

 

Is  the fact all along we are just an alien experiment?

 

The Foureyed Poet.

The Carriage!

In a railway siding an armoured carriage

was shunted in late at night.

There were many soldiers as well as police

patrolling the sprawling yards.

Weapons with live ammunition snipers ready

trying to keep nerves steady!

 

This was a top-secret joint military operation

something imprisoned inside.

Sound proofed and reinforced to keep it in

not wanting the thing to escape.

The only noise the coupling of the carriage

and a muffled roar of rage!

 

Notices in large red letters read danger hazard

keep off ministry of defence.

A mile away on moorland soldiers gathered

guarding an area perimeter.

Where some kind of craft had been downed

burning and shattered on the ground!

 

From within an alien being was discovered dead

but a second was found alive.

Close by unhurt in what looked like an escape pod

wondering about dazed.

Tranquilizer darts quickly neutralized the foe

it’s capability’s they didn’t know!

 

The alien being was large and extremely heavy

almost prehistoric in description.

Hastily caged and restrained in the carriage

to get on a plane that night.

From the sidings  they started on their secret trip

the creature and it’s ship.

 

But the military who thought they were superior

secretive and totally secure.

Had not realised the craft was not on its own

as they moved the carriage.

Acting with suspicion thinking it was hostile

being viewed mile on mile!

 

But above hovered an undetected cloaked craft

ready to instigate a rescue!

With all the surveillance they were unaware

the train screeched to a stop.

Weapons couldn’t fire then a bright beam

shone down in a wide stream!

 

The carriage locks broke the doors just opened

and the creature was lifted.

Into the waiting ship which rapidly accelerated

high into the atmosphere.

Then it had gone leaving the military helpless

their prize now in spaces vast emptiness!

 

Man may think he’s superior and strong

but in truth this certainly is wrong!

 

Would these aliens return in a more hostile mood!
