Remember!

What has changed over the many centuries

brave men and women volunteer

to serve and fight for their countries in wars

thrust into those endless conflicts

giving their lives souls and many body parts

there after breaking families hearts!

 

Peace just a word that has been used to entice

those with that pride to protect

the humanity that they are each a small part

who are willing to suffer and die

through shocking hardships and real brutality

yet can man change his mentality?

 

While those who instigate plans profit stay safe

and weapons from nations kill

those they say their freedom fight to protect

lines are blurred who is the enemy

millions continue to be eliminated on the front line

the end to the butchery no sign!

 

Another year has come when we remember them

the fallen graves spread over the fields

some its only a name many there is no name at all

giving the ultimate sacrifice their lives

yet nothing changes the unrest continues to grow

the bloodshed ever onward’s doth flow!

 

I remember those who believed in their loyalty

without question went with pride

hopefully bringing everlasting peace to humanity

through their armed resistance

yet still wait for that moment of world unity

that final end to so much hostility!

 

In my humility stand silently to remember the fallen!

Edge of Chaos!

Life seemed to be on the edge of chaos

misery was spreading

with the upsurge in gutter poverty

and that haunting stare

wherever you walked beggars pleading

their will to live receding!

 

Arriving home one evening there sitting

on my porch step a man

this was my first impression nearing

its shape changed before me

coming to a halt uncertain what to expect

hostility began to detect!

 

For what seemed minutes it did not move

then crawled out of view

cautiously approached there was a stain

green and foul-smelling

avoiding the substance yet very aware

that it was right there!

 

Instinct made me turn feeling a presence

the mass was at my back

just managed to escape its fateful grasp

crashing to the flower bed

running from my own house petrified

for me nowhere to hide!

 

From their desperation they were created

an abominable creation of beast

were mutated by the pollution and poverty

until that moment had never seen

just an urban legend until we collided

my emotions deeply divided!

 

Illusions gone discovering it was real not fiction

these predators humans mutated

the population grew it became an affliction

as poverty divided rich from poor

once like me a human living with family ties

with all the hidden deceits and lies!

 

Life was chaos nights became a fight for our survival!

Saturday Night!

Already the effects of the alcohol made her feel ill

but could not let her friends down

she was having fun their night had only just begun

loud laughter everyone swaying

a regular Saturday night out drunk on a city street

a buzz she believed could not be beat!

 

Crowded music was loud adding to the excitement

no hint of any dangers close by

though their laughter would soon no longer be heard

panic replacing joyous banter

revellers were talking as junks of masonry began to fall

a beast soon their flesh would maul!

 

A huge dark shape swooped from thick cloudy skies

colliding with many their bodies shattered

crushing them with its claws and razor-sharp beak

at first they could not comprehend

hundreds scattered from this an unexpected scene

with images understandably obscene!

 

It was jumping and flying down amongst the buildings

as many disintegrated in its wake

others were instantly snatched by the long sharp claws

at such a speed was impossible to tell

at a party being held at a night club on its roof top bar

he was filming a situation so very bizarre!

 

There originally to record the celebrations of the guests

his attention quickly drawn away

glimpses of the attacker looked like a prehistoric beast

those around were panicking

as the night lit up with what seemed glowing spheres

from space adding to their fears!

 

Chaos reigned above human noise a deafening cry

that put those fleeing into a frenzy

some fell from the roofs others just lost rationality

all the time he filmed as he ran

tripping over the falling self-preservation his aim

no way in the vicinity could remain!

 

But with a few from the party tried so hard to escape

the army blocked their only route

firing with no hope of success at the swooping thing

huge yet so agile and aggressive pursuit

through the underground managed to leave the scene

then danger that was unforeseen!

 

Thinking it would be safe to go back up on street level

had not account for more of these invaders

as they were picked off one by one the camera rolled

even when knocked unconscious

the others fatally wounded until the breaking of day

their bodies spirited away!

 

He awoke weak unable to move at these aliens mercy

knew there was no chance of rescue

going into shack his soul was nearly ready to depart

the best swooped and he was gone

the video camera fell upon the rubble strewn ground

no longer part of this battleground!

 

It would be sometime before his footage came to light

the young woman survived her nightmare plight!

 

But it would be a long bloody fight to victory!
