Motionless!

Intrigued could not help but notice her

sitting on the metal bench

just motionless as he waited for a bus

was she real he surmised

fixated on a  smartly dressed woman

whose face began to change

into the form of a reptilian beast

his focus on reality ceased!

 

Knocking into a passerby with force

they retaliated hitting out

in frustration he made a quick exit

perplexed at what he saw

managed to get his bus was relieved

to be leaving the area

then noticed the woman on the bus

under his breath did cuss!

 

Tried to ignore her but glanced around

certain others faces blurred

now paranoid thinking this was absurd

why was he seeing these images

thinking what could have caused this

the only difference on this day

had bought drops for his tired dry eyes

had they exposed a hidden disguise!

 

He sat uncertain what to do anymore

these were regular passengers

who he had traveled with every day

many were not human beings

that thought made his skin clammy

for the first time was tense

as they all acted perfectly ordinary

this situation was so scary!

 

Approaching his stop his eyes felt dry

dared not put in more drops

so he clumsily and cautiously got off

and watched the bus drive away

confused at what he had just witnessed

every shadow was a challenge

so glad his house was coming into sight

certain everything would be alright!

 

His wife had the dinner ready on the table

her husband was punctual

yet by morning light had not come home

sat in front of congealed food

she never heard her husband’s voice again

not aware of his discovery

left to an empty future to face the nightmare

oblivious with aliens the air did share!

 

You never know who you are sitting next to!

Illegal Race!

The engine purred it was highly tuned

pristine so shiny the red beast

along side a green car with tinted glass

both poised on the open road

a girl stood holding red handkerchief

jumping with such excitement

hundreds there shouting making a din

ready for the illegal race to begin!

 

As her arm dropped with a sharp thrust

engines roared wheels spinning

smell of burnt rubber soon out of sight

speeds now exceeded a ton

down the public highway eyes fixated

the law these speeders hated!

 

Their paths blocked as they approached

passing pedestrians scattered

too often other motorists compromised

by adrenaline pumping youth

risking their lives and others for the thrill

lacking common sense and skill!

 

After night falls on any long straight roads

teenage racers will gather

to break the law to show off and display

their customized chariots

for them no rules just drive like bloody hell

boasting videos and stories to tell!

 

Living for the moment upon social media!

Refugees?

The small group of refugees stuck together

as if in a family unit

young men and women with one intent

minds aligned to hate

despising those who did not think their way

or in their beliefs pray!

 

Had it in their minds to cause the west mayhem

each focused on the same path

those who did not follow in their philosophy

were a target to harm

more twisted thinking none wanting any peace

just hatred and violence to release!

 

Through history they were not a new evil breed

but part of a radical creed

thus everybody was wrong if they did not agree

narrowly fixated without grace

within their suicidal cruel and sadistic thought

the innocent a solution sought!

 

Not caring who were the people they obliterated

or upon which powerful nation

the planet has become an endless battleground

where populations exist in fear

uncertain where any safety could ever be found

and fanatics no more their lives to hound!

 

Yet with spiralling terror when all is said and done

no matter what background most folks are one!
