Sinkhole!

Outside of the desert camp gates

a sinkhole had appeared

during the long cold dark night

their entrance blocked

patrols at the perimeter fence

found cracks so immense!

 

Anybody within were trapped

the only way out fly

but there were no helicopters

nobody knew the cause

deep concern a secret facility

it was an act of hostility!

 

Who was the enemy contact lost

communications down

alone in the middle of a desert

an unseen enemy close

vibrations beneath their feet

with nowhere to retreat!

 

How any invaders could penetrate

or attack undetected

a dark project non-existent site

caused a major threat

no time to initiate self destruct

the project was fucked!

 

Blasts grew louder from below

the ground they stood on

disintegrated as the craft rose

cylindrical and metallic

slowly emerged from the debris

leaving behind the frenzy!

 

From the small sinkhole it grew

until everything imploded

those few soldiers who survived

helplessly watched

as in silence and blink of an eye

it vanished into the sky!

 

The leaders were far from amused

the stolen technology

could lead to the their downfall

those mighty paymasters

defeated by their doomsday device

mankind paying the price!

 

Could such a scenario really happen?

Street light!

The street light flickered above her head

just thought it faulty

walked on down the well-lit pavement

then at the fifth post

went out with a bang followed by the rest

a tightness in her chest!

 

The crowds surrounding her became silent

from a loud happy crowd

a forced silence and uncertainty spread

what sounded like gunfire

created a panic as screams filled the air

of the growing danger all aware!

 

Glass windows shattered amongst city lights

mayhem ensued nobody knew

darkness filled the pedestrian walkways

as injured lay sprawled

masked angry figures moved quickly around

crouched low to the ground!

 

Impossible to tell if they were of human origin

in the beginning just a few

but the number rapidly grew firing weapons

that did not look familiar

those who tried to escape were hit by a beam

fell without even a scream!

 

From the sky lights blinded yet deathly quiet

many were herded together

the woman was forced to stand she knew

this was no alien invasion

she had never before seen a real android

that of human emotions were void!

 

But it had been reported many had escaped

from a military facility

now able to think being far more intelligent

the public were told

they had been captured the danger contained

order had been maintained!

 

A craft landed and people were forced onboard

loud explosions started

the army and police arrived causing more panic

helicopters now hovered

in a flash the androids ship was hit and exploded

hope of rescue eroded!

 

Taking just a few hostages they fled the carnage

followed by the troops

many bodies lay around yet none of the robots

littered the bloody scene

made by man as an indestructible military force

news said from an unknown source!

 

The woman walked back fires now lit her way

guided by uniformed officers

distant explosions filled the smoke polluted air

sirens whaled incessantly

paramedics attended the wounded and dead

she dreaded the future ahead!

 

Robot wars no longer science fiction but reality!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

 

An Urban Adventurer!

Thought himself as an urban adventurer

loved to enter banned sites

that read danger no entry on big signs

including disused bases

secret government bunkers for the few

that they existed nobody knew!

 

Prefered to explore no matter the danger

climbing into darkness and decay

being always ready for any unknown peril

undaunted of his own risk

Proceeded to his next conquest he found

somewhere deep underground!

 

An adrenaline rush knowing it was illegal

covertly approached the entrance

hidden in the undergrowth broke the lock

removed a rusted chain

pulled back the steel door his hunt to begin

weird sounds came from within!

 

Unperturbed with headlight on proceeded in

could smell the dampness

the corridor was long with doors on either side

that were locked without markings

felt the usual tenseness at last reaching the end

through an archway began to descend!

 

Never before had he seen a bunker so preserved

it was if this one was being used

every step echoed that was not unusual normally

being a skeptic of ghosts and monsters

just fiction to scare the masses he always thought

was there more to be sought!

 

The tunnel bifurcated in front another steel door

heard more distant noises

nearly made his exit but curiosity overtook fear

opting to enter the steel door

in red letters do not enter bio hazard warning

these notices was always ignoring!

 

With ease the handle now twisted in his hand

cautiously opened it and entered

the forbidden zone as the adrenaline flowed

ahead it seemed so bright

had a foreboding that he should not be here

but at the point of no return clear!

 

Found himself looking down on a vast chamber

saucer-shaped craft visible

men in white coats and overalls working on them

intently watching this activity

this never expected to see thinking it was derelict

something he could never predict!

 

Unaware behind him two alien creatures stood

never felt the lethal discharge

from their weapon hit him in his lower spine

two human soldiers took him away

entry point sealed forever to close the breach

no other intruders this place to reach!

 

Deep below the urban countryside a secret hidden

any intrusion was forbidden

the purpose of the military facility was classified

if the public knew would be horrified!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

Vapour!

It had been a very dry long hot summer

everybody was glad it was cooler

the end of August rapidly approached

and the new school term neared

there was only one main road in and out

of the town suffering a drought!

 

Tempers were fraying as water dried up

then the earth tremor struck

shaking every property in the township

windows and crockery shattered

on the main road a wide crack appeared

in Jenson panic reared!

 

In fact the residents were now trapped

it ran the whole length

of main street and seemed to be deep

rising from its depths

a pungent vapour rose out copiously

with a deadly potency!

 

At the rear on one side a fast flowing river

on the opposite side a high cliff

wedging the town in a gap like a Sandwich

a few miles down the road

stood the aging nuclear research facility

with them a mutual animosity!

 

Towns folk began to become ill collapsing

and mutating zombie like beasts

but not everyone seemed to be affected

and a small group had to hide

as the a babbling growing group searched

as on a roof survivors perched!

 

None of the few knew why at this moment

they had not been effected

by the rising the poisonous spreading gas

below in the street butchery

their once friends ripped each other apart

from here must quickly part!

 

Luck or providence this side an easier option

though the river was fast

wild as it smashed violently onto jagged rocks

at least it was low down

not a sheer cliff face to climb hundreds of feet

no way would they admit defeat!

 

Trying not to make any sound entered a shop

through a skylight window

dropping into the sports department of a store

gathering what they needed

making a quick exit as the mutants entered

as these thing got more demented!

 

The vapour was quickly replacing the clean air

tying scarves around their mouth’s

with ropes and life jackets headed for the water

time a luxury not granted

the girls were braver entering the cold water

now or never could not falter!

 

As they were swept along glancing back observed

the mutants on the river bank

as the vapour had now obliterated Jenson town

but their bodies were pounded

onward down to the quieter slow running part

four from the water did depart!

 

One was lost swept away unable to stay afloat

yet though the surroundings

were clear the winds direction could change

there may well be an epidemic

of unimaginable magnitude they had to warn

before mankind it did spawn!

 

But now the wind had deviated towards the city!

 

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

 

 

 

The Experts!

The experts stood pondering over the plans

of this non existing facility!

Uncertain of how to penetrate its defences

designed to be impregnable.

Fully aware the self destruct was triggered

how to get in they figured?

 

Not for concern of the staff trapped far below

information in a black ops vault!

Had to be manually retrieved now at any cost

and advanced alien technology!

Where classified experiments were conducted

and space craft reconstructed!

 

Contact was lost so the urgency rose to red alert

what was happening below?

As special teams prepared to force their way in

time was rapidly running out!

The clock was against this highly risky mission

nearing destruction by nuclear fission!

 

Within this underground complex was turmoil

captured alien beings had escaped!

And were in total control intent on escaping

they started the chain reaction!

Eradicating their technology before it was used

that mankind had abused!

 

From space one large craft came rapidly down

leaving the cloaked mother ship!

Executed with precision and complete secrecy

communications not detected.

The aliens emerged through a remote air vent

as special forces made their descent!

 

The craft landed and the group quickly boarded

almost instantly it was gone!

Time had run out for the assault team and staff

there was a huge detonation.

Seismic activity spread for thousands of miles

never to be found in any files!

 

The truth would never be told!

It was not the only facility !
