The mixed group of hikers felt a slight tremor

as the wind picked up

on a desolate icy and snow filled wilderness

lost as the heavy snow

hit their bodies as the temperature dropped

it would be foolish if they stopped!


Finally found a sheltered area safe to camp

protection from the elements

though some equipment lost on the trail

had enough supplies for now

six-men and women huddled in a tent

it would be a night of torment!


It had been reported bright lights were seen

falling from the swirling clouds

the night before the hikers passed through

from details on investigation

during the atrocious storm they left the tent

for some unknown intent!


More hikers alerted the rescue authorities

after finding the deserted camp

there seemed to be no signs of any struggle

search parties were formed

finding their mangled corpses what desire

going out only in night attire!


None being alive at first it was thought bears

the culprit of a despicable act

injuries caused by a weapon not any claws

covered all the bodies

but what had drawn them out into such cold

would the truth ever be told?


No tracks beside the victims could be detected

adding to this enigma

many reported feeling nauseated on the recovery

and were glad to leave

sensing whatever had done this was very nearby

they to could easily die!


Tests carried out later gave them more surprises

tissue and fluid samples found

were not of human origin adding to the conundrum

many years later unsolved

few would ever venture to the area no locals dared

either sensible or truly scared!

Snake Like Thing!

He was sure it was there only had two drinks

yes it was really dark.

He’d been scared it was certainly unexpected

that snake-like thing!

It was there in the village he was born

his own opinion torn.


Worrying he had started seeing objects

was unstable on his feet.

So pleased to get to his own garden gate

stopping there was a sound.

Certain something had followed behind

even his path felt confined.


Reaching his door step turned in the porch

sweat running down his neck.

There was a weird noise that got closer

yet he could see nothing!

Waiting to cry out his cords were frozen

the victim had been chosen!


The snake-like thing rose high and menacing

engulfed the man’s taught body!

Nothing was left but a pool of body fluid

the alien killer moved on!

In search of more flesh to sustain its being

this thing few were seeing!


By the post office a man thought he saw a snake

must have been a mistake!
