Bugs?

As the car passed the historic building

surrounded by scaffolding

the driver was certain something huge

hovered amidst the structure

an orange glow from the street lights

formed an eerie pattern

that resembled a giant spider outline

its tentacles the poles did entwine!

 

Mesmerized hit a stationary parked car

air bags inflated felt the jolt

shaken they got out fearful of sighting

nobody seemed to be around

the three stood huddled then a clatter

as scaffolding began to fall

a shape dropped to the street close by

on instinct would have to rely!

 

Decided to exit certain the area was unsafe

whatever the object seen

knew it was an imminent danger to them

through an alley they ran

hopefully were making their way to safety

but came upon devastation

another arachnid scaled down a stone wall

making them feel significantly small!

 

Below a large crowd of revelers were dancing

before they could give a warning

it was upon them and many were devoured

from behind heard anguished cries

where had these things come from evaluated

as high above the sky lit up

filled with a flaming roaring meteor shower

they diverted into the high office tower!

 

Out of breath reached the top of the block

forcing open the fire escape

scrambled onto the flat roof nowhere to go

a panoramic view of the chaos

the sky was alight and fire rose from below

they witnessed the coming

of intelligent bugs swarming as fighter jets

for them no time for regrets!

 

Approaching them on the roof a huge bug

swiftly followed by missiles

the building exploded catapulting the three

into free fall this was their end

inexplicably there was a canal down below

and though from a great height

survived the hard impact hitting mud bank

then all just went blank!

 

Awoke freezing and dazed as the action raged

soldiers were around them

soon they were found and taken to a safe area

where some tale was conveyed

told the population could only be protected

if they remained in chosen districts

as authorities pursued ways of eradicating

an enemy to humans devastating!

 

It would be a long time before the people knew

the real truth of the invaders

as what is visible to our senses and is so real

the facts from us all they did conceal!

Far Below!

Like ants scurrying life went on far below

while several miles in the sky

an airline pilot knew there was a problem

the passengers were aware

after the shudder and bangs occurred

the assurances all were absurd!

 

Fear was etched on the air stewards faces

as the plane rapidly lost elevation

both the pilots struggling to regain control

passengers to filled with dread

oxygen masks came rapidly into their view

another bang as left engine blew!

 

Alarms sounded it was heading for the ground

no panic yet an expectation

nor screams or crying but a disturbing calm

each felt this their final destination

emergency crews ready at the nearby airport

impacting runway that was too short!

 

Crashing onto the tarmac at too high a speed

metal grating as plane ripped apart

fuel igniting spilling out of ruptured tanks

fire truck ready with foam spray

those inside waited for broken plane to stop

heading for a sheer drop!

 

With inches to spare the plane came to rest

now a raging fire people still alive

rescuers there to save to help survivors

fearing the worst they strived

to quell the savage flames and get them out

had anybody lived there was doubt!

 

For some astounding reason all were spared

now and forever a bond they shared!

 

The cause of the near disaster yet to be determined!
