Crazy!

Was he going crazy had not been drinking

taken any drugs or ingested pills

yet certain his car had been parked here

contacted the duty attendant

also angry at the difficulty in locating him

after coming out of his local gym!

 

Eventually an irritated middle-aged male

met him outside of his office

after returning from having his late lunch

followed this concerned driver

guided him back only to see it was there

in disbelief could only stare!

 

With a grunt the man left the confused driver

to ponder his sanity and eyesight

as still sweating he drove cautiously home

deeply puzzled at this latest glitch

these episodes had happened to him before

were these illusions he must not to ignore?

 

Was this earth that he had known all his life

until now had believed it solid

realised matter was atoms tightly linked

but was it really a scientific fact

as increasingly objects were disappearing

could outside forces be interfering?

 

What was real anymore he thought glancing

around the street in which he lived

once in his house at the furniture and closely

at the fabric of his dwelling as well

was he alive or controlled by a puppet master

reality true or a fabricated disaster?

 

Is what you wake up to each day and remember

actually happening or green screen images

an electronic society where anything can be made

by different types of artificial intelligence

can you be certain that the voice or faces are real

on your devices is it truly the honest deal?

 

Be careful out there you never know whose observing!

Pensioner!

Just a pensioner not rich worked all his life

paid his taxes owed nothing

entitled to no benefits a proud honest man

at last got his small bungalow

now retired family had grown fled the nest

had until recently felt blessed!

 

Thought himself just one member of society

saved and earned every penny

pleased that day he had got his dream home

no frills but was their dream

sadly he would be moving in this place alone

missed her the only love he had known!

 

Sorry his wife had gone they were never parted

now could not physically share

yet knew her spirit would always be very near

their pet dog they both loved

would be close by his side the day he entered

for a simple life his hopes centered!

 

His two children helped him safely get settled in

but lived some distance away

though not the same was still a contented man

country views no neighbours to close

eased himself into a routine and restful lifestyle

certain he would live here for some while!

 

For months was good walking with his best friend

trips to the nearby picturesque village

soon winter was approaching began to stay in more

unaware of strangers observing

on a cold night snow falling upon sodden ground

the dog heard an unfamiliar sound!

 

Jim had fallen asleep under his duvet oh so warm

barked at the bedroom door

too late the hooded burglars were already inside

burst in to the darkened room

in the intruders muscular leg tiny teeth did sink

then Jim hit before could wake and blink!

 

In minutes the dog lay unconscious by his master

as the bungalow was ransacked

without thought or any respect his home violated

thinking he must have wealth hidden

pissed off stole his precious ten-year old motor car

found burnt out nearby a bloody iron bar!

 

The perpetrators long gone to find another victim

when dad never made a call

to his daughter as usual on the Thursday evening

called the police and headed there

only to be told he was critically ill in intensive care

the children gathered their grief to share!

 

Jim never woke up he succumbed to the assault

now resting with his beloved wife

his loyal mate Tinker who had stayed by his side

recovered who often sat by the grave

missed his kind voice for him would always grieve

and the sticks he threw for him to retrieve!

 

Eventually the thugs were apprehended and jailed

but not before others were hurt

sentenced to twenty-five years in a secure facility

to the victims it was a kind of justice

small comfort for the dad and granddad they had lost

the memories and his suffering too high a cost!

Often Unseen

Often unseen the many forgotten people

in any inhabited places.

Lonely struggling to live on low pay

to proud to ask for support.

Not only the elderly are in the shade

emotions not displayed.

 

Many living in homes without any heating

eating little with no contact.

Confined to one room all they own in a bag

nobody comes to call.

Some work long hours on the minimum wage

but are not filled with rage.

 

Not demanding nor expecting any support

or trying to fleece the state.

Genuine lonely and truly independent souls

who deserve more respect.

Giving the kindness most of won’t ever receive

a rare gift in humility they believe.

 

Vulnerable as they still think in the old values

of  honesty and respect!

Making them ideal targets for those to hound

intent on taking their last pound!

Stealing!

Able to go about your daily life without dread

with no fear there’s somebody in your area

who has the intention to take what you own

by deception or more likely violent means

completely selfish and focused on stealing

not for them honest toil or legal dealing!

 

Their lives revolve for crime no matter the cost

no thought or remorse from whom it’s taken

from young to elderly they have no conscience

never working infraction their way of daily living

if their own families were to suffer the crime

it would be the only justice for this nasty slime!

 

This type of felony I’ve no doubt will get worse

callous and cruel thieves stealing from others

by violence or deception too often calculated

sociopathic behaviour of different degrees

routine activity taking not only from the rich

the aim their own lives they want to enrich!

Nothing Is Personal!

Nothing is personal or sacred today it would seem

each one of us watched in one way or another

any secrets can soon be in the public domain

as there are those snooping of the official kind

even a neighbour or a so-called close friend

spying and seeking evidence you can’t defend!

 

Our home phones and mobiles can be quickly tapped

computers being hacked and viruses downloaded

wherever we turn the cameras are there tracking

to catch us speeding and check number plates

undercover agents look to see if we illegally claim

catching those they say are the right ones to blame!

 

The major rise is by frauds and crooks after our cash

from false emails stating you’ve won big money

to your credit and debit card details being cloned

with the genuine hard workers and honest folk

targets for private bailiffs able to seek and hound

crooks ready to steal leaving us dead on the ground!

 

Becoming a nasty complex and frightening society

treated like fools in repugnant ways

protection undermined by the so-called authorities

we are told what they want us to believe

honesty is no security against prosecution anymore

most dread the future that is for sure!
