Splashed!

Just a great day in the big city

a treat for the couple

their one annual visit was here

a tour of historic sites

look around the stores a show

happy together toe to toe!

 

Busy hustle and bustle of people

minding their own business

walking enjoying the atmosphere

heard a scooter close by

something wet on their heads fell

and life became a living hell!

 

Seconds later the pain unbearable

as flesh began to burn

everyone realised both splashed

with a corrosive liquid

was another abhorrent acid attack

time they could not backtrack!

 

From nowhere water was handed

to passersby who helped

pouring water on to damaged skin

trying to dilute the substance

ease the suffering of the innocence

with tender touch did commence!

 

The Perpetrators long gone from scene

utter disbelief a savage act

in a city centre street made no sense

or perception of their mentality

soon paramedics were there attending

the search on for those offending!

 

Both in hospital wounds being assessed

to see extent of tissue damage

as doctors frantically fought to minimise

the long term consequences

of physical restrictions to future living

mentally it would be unforgiving!

 

Such a despicable act is on the increase

mans cruelty knows no bounds

but what has changed over centuries

those just wanting to live

in peace and harmony wanting unity

without malice in every community!

 

But always those who are intent on hate

inflicting endless misery

not caring for anybody but themselves

where mercy does not exist

will take at any cost to make profit

for humanity does not give a shit!

 

Amongst us they roam devils in human form!

Before The Nation!

Before the nation many have volunteered

to join military forces

fighting for Queen and country in wars

proud to serve until death

facing many different enemies they went

with honour and good intent!

 

Politicians controlled them like chess pawns

dispensable in action

no thought for precious loyal fighting men

serving in appalling conditions

families waiting in constant concern at home

as into the abyss they roam!

 

There with comrades violence all around

often with devastating odds

campaigns of battle rage on into infinity

ravaging the once innocent

becoming oblivious in time to the carnage

as the spirit fills with rage!

 

Exhausted their courage can never be denied

against all odds heads held high with pride!

Large Black Eyes!

Stories have been told for many decades

that have increased in intensity

creating terror for those it has touched

instilling a dread none will forget

one incident happened on a Halloween

the fear could not be foreseen!

 

Around ten in the evening the dog barked

running about in a crazy manner

she was otherwise alone on this night

heard a faint tap on the front door

feeling uncertain walked down the hall

heard a child’s faint voice call!

 

There were no children living in the house

just herself with the agitated dog

her husband had left to work a night shift

through the frosted glass

two small silhouettes were visible there

of her own anxiety was aware!

 

The voice called again please may we come in

she thought it late for children

to be on their own replied what do you want

her hand shook opening the door

looked down saw two poorly dressed children

one about twelve the other under ten!

 

The barking continued as an unpleasant odour

made her feel suddenly nauseous

the older child stepped forward into clear view

illuminated by the hall light

making her move back strangely was afraid

their presence a threat conveyed!

 

Holding the door tightly so neither could enter

then they lifted their heads together

holding back a scream shocked at what she saw

their eyes were large and black

two pale skinned faces that seemed stretched

on them something inhuman etched!

 

Slammed the door and put on the safety change

added go away you cannot come in

what seemed like hours they stood on the porch

but eventually walked away

went to the bay window with its clear street view

they were nowhere insight terror grew!

 

Sat freezing on the carpet for the remaining night

a frightened pet huddled close and tight!
