Shattered!

Stressed took a stroll noticed no insects

could not detect any bees or butterfly’s

filling the scene worryingly in decline

relaxed gently sat on a grassy hill-top

over looking the fields and small town

but the calm was soon to be shattered

and his fortunes would soon turn sour

as what he thought was a rare insect

with his vision did suddenly connect!

 

Annoying it flew very close to his head

had to stand and up from his position

making no difference as now followed

soon there were more flying along to

swatting at them one seemed to strike

landing on his naked arm a sharp jab

hitting it with reflex action plummeted

down onto dusty well trodden footpath

curious decided to inspect this nasty foe

the consequences then did not know!

 

Gasped as on close inspection discovered

that this was not a natural living bug

but a minute very intricate type of drone

designed like a mosquito held in his hand

soon seemed to move and then flew away

he began to feel so unwell and collapsed

found by passing cyclists hugging the earth

taking some time to get any medical support

the couple in this dire scenario were caught!

 

Delirious he kept mumbling insects not real

nobody attending knew what he meant

far to incoherent they did not understand

a few days later in the intensive care unit

his body succumbed to unknown toxins

the only clue a puncture wound on his skin

all organs had completely ceased to function

to the coroner a frustrating puzzle emerged

his theories of cause made him feel disturbed!

 

Especially when told the facts were classified!

 

Could this really be true?

Bite!

The pain lasted a split second like a sting

true there were flying insects

as she walked by the fast flowing river

the irritation that followed

soon began to swell on her upper arm

it started to cause alarm!

 

Determined to finish her relaxing stroll

though that hope was fading

had to rest luckily a large tree was close

drowsiness overcame her

was soon in a deep and unnatural sleep

into a dark place her mind did leap!

 

Leaning helplessly back against the bark

became aware of creatures

of unknown origin approaching casually

could not move or scream

being dragged nearer the rivers fast flow

terror building to a crescendo!

 

Into the swirling waters her body did go

grasped by claws pulling her

down into a murky subterranean realm

dark damp a smell of decay

watching these freakish beings with care

trying hard not to stare!

 

Tried to keep still and shallowly breath

several gazed her way

eyes sunk that started to glow advanced

saw the teeth felt the bite

as severe pain surged through her torso

the transformation slow!

 

Last recollection was screaming for mercy

so cold could see and feel

surely it must have been an awful dream

until she was now basking

not of human anatomy on the riverbank

an alien beast into the water sank!

 

No dream but an unbelievable reality!
