The vast flock of birds turned day into night
nobody watching had observed it before
swarmed overwhelming the market square
swooping low with an intelligent intent
squawking drowning out all normal sound
this spectacle did all present confound!
Viciously hit by sharp claws and sharp beaks
petrified by the blood curdling shrieks!
Loud bangs were heard as birds began to fall
covering the roads and walk areas
like a thick black carpet upon paved ground
life lost in their panicked flight
a scene of devastation was spread all around
something unseen here did abound!
Nowhere to tread without stepping on birds
their expressions no need for words!
The grey swirling skies were empty of life
faint eerie rumbles continued
there was no explanation for this situation
cats roamed in a triumphant parade
in the distance birds still hovered on trees
not approaching watching with unease!
Eventually every bird carcasses was removed
nothing was found to have caused it
yet the ill-health amongst the large community
increased to unparalleled numbers
all cats and dogs disappeared from the state
nothing was found to confirm their fate!
What had migrated to the this pleasant spot
unknown was it a human or alien plot?
Heavy clouds remained nothing above now flew
life began to wither people contained
in case this contamination was able to spread
experts searched for even a single clue
that spiritual connection with people remained
as those trapped each day did dread!
Then on one repetitive day it was consumed
by thick black clouds and forever entombed!
