Illegal Race!

The engine purred it was highly tuned

pristine so shiny the red beast

along side a green car with tinted glass

both poised on the open road

a girl stood holding red handkerchief

jumping with such excitement

hundreds there shouting making a din

ready for the illegal race to begin!


As her arm dropped with a sharp thrust

engines roared wheels spinning

smell of burnt rubber soon out of sight

speeds now exceeded a ton

down the public highway eyes fixated

the law these speeders hated!


Their paths blocked as they approached

passing pedestrians scattered

too often other motorists compromised

by adrenaline pumping youth

risking their lives and others for the thrill

lacking common sense and skill!


After night falls on any long straight roads

teenage racers will gather

to break the law to show off and display

their customized chariots

for them no rules just drive like bloody hell

boasting videos and stories to tell!


Living for the moment upon social media!






Nobody would know what the truck carried

upon the national highways

an unmarked semi blending in with the others

the cab with darkened glass

few would notice it had been armour-plated

in an isolated compound waited!


There from a large warehouse men loaded

in hooded protective overalls

radio-active containers into the interior

lead-lined and air tight

guards and cameras watched every move

the commander had to approve!


Fully loaded with an illegal cargo departed

alone to join the highway

like a chameleon blended into the traffic

nobody suspected its load

through the dense traffic moving at speed

to its destination did proceed!


Not the first trip but one of many undertaken

by a fleet of large specialist rigs

with deadly loads taking the risk of detection

and of the hazards of a crash

but approved by an unregistered department

that had given consent!


Never without a covert military escort following

undetectable like the semi trucks

were designed to blend in with any background

they continue the deadly tasks

under the blinkered eyes of unsuspecting public

that had become very slick!


Upon the highways they carry their lethal loads

through major and minor roads

from one secret destination to the next roam

only the few need know

beware of all the unmarked semi trucks behind

or ahead and within confined!

The Lorry!

The lorry moved off slowly from the docks

after the channel crossing.

Inside not only the legal cargo on board

four illegal passengers as well!

Laid silent lucky to have avoided detection

no staff for a border inspection!


Two were just taking a chance on the entry

the others had different plans.

As the lorry came to a stop as darkness fell

the driver had to rest.

It was a chance for two to leave the trailer

for them there was no failure!


The lorry’s side panels were made of canvas

easy to cut their way out!

Quiet as two cunning foxes they got away

here they had no permission!

Able to move freely without any detection

through a bad entry inspection!


Under a low railway bridge they were met

by an expensive waiting car.

Whisked away to join the assembled team

to carry out their attack!

Nobody in security knew of this organisation

and their intent on our eradication!


Too late as often is the outcome in our times

an explosion occurred soon after!

There were deaths injuries and destruction

they then became known!

But the agencies didn’t learn to cooperate

for more trouble we wait!


The two terrorists slipped away undetected!


Fictitious but is there any truth here?
