The Cave!

Though claustrophobic agreed to enter the cave

his girlfriend keen to go on the tour

she did not know his phobia he tried to act brave

assured himself it would be fine

but at the sight of the dark damp sloping interior

sensed his increasing hysteria!

 

There was eight in the group waiting for clothing

helmets and a bright headlight

rumbling sounds and faint tremors under foot

made him want to turn and run

but everybody else were becoming so excited

his partner was really delighted!

 

To soon the guide gathered them inside the cave

giving compulsory talk on risks

and to stay close keeping to the designated route

as there were falling rocks

as he listened he thought he heard an odd sound

not happy being underground!

 

He followed trying to look interested for his girl

realising how deep it was getting

the wooden fencing and walkways were rickety

every word echoed around

those vast chambers it was a different world

without warning a rock was hurled!

 

The group stopped people screamed as it hit

on the path just up ahead

sounding like thunder as the guide shouted

for everybody not to panic

though did sustain a facial cut a piece of rock

was an unexpected shock!

 

From then on their situation became terminal

from all sides hideous beasts

crawled down the steep sharp rocks converging

they all turned running back

one a man crashed through the railings and fell

down into depths of hell!

 

Grabbing his girlfriend headed in the dim lighting

as he thoughts was the way

back to the surface screaming for him slowdown

but so paranoid did not listen

until he felt a violent jolt that made come to a halt

the reason for this sought!

 

In disbelief was holding on to her severed arm

the rest of her was gone

before he could take another step was facing

something he had never seen

a humanoid creature with huge blank eyes

it lunged nobody heard his cries!

 

Razor sharp teeth then ripped out his throat

as he was quickly overwhelmed

the corpses were taken back to their nest

upon the surface concern

that all communication had been terminated

no problems had been indicated!

 

The company had just bought this franchise

not being told of its bad history

so were oblivious to the carnage in the cave

as a rescue team prepared to enter

without the knowledge of what awaited below

into the entrance they did go!

Fair maiden

Fair maiden walking by my side

together we chatter I cannot hide

our feelings of love my miss Jane

from blushing it is hard to refrain

sunny strolling on a path of stone

the two of us are happy alone.

 

Cherished hours united we share

the time is short both are aware

soon I must return to the war

a chance I may return no more

my king and country I am loyal

to protect our liberty and our soil.

 

Fair maiden here with you I pray

to be back for our wedding day

if this is not truly meant to be

my love this day remember me

not in a mud filled putrid trench

with comrades and human stench!

 

Never forget those  lives cut short

freedom for all is why we fought!
