Deep Waters!

Not even a ripple disturbed the dark deep waters

of the secluded mysterious inland lake

stories had been told for centuries of a monster

that roamed the deep below

open grassland swept down to the lapping shore

rising to the high mountainous contour!

 

Deep murky water that kept its secrets hidden

cold and unforgiving to humans

who had searched its depths for endless decades

certain the beast was within

many sightings and hoaxes kept the legend viable

not really classified as reliable!

 

But the stream of monster seekers was constant

hoping to get their glimpse of it

whatever swam and lived there below covertly

yet no conclusive evidence found

driftwood birds rippling waves it was suggested

as no beast in the waters infested!

 

Yet there is an element of possibility that lingers

those who live around the waters

seemed to believe and that underlining disquiet

it existed there beneath

a respect for what is part of their ancient folklore

that simmer’s all along the lakeshore!

 

They deeply feel this is not a mythical creature

and maybe is able to be camouflaged

observing man fearful of his ominous presence

or is there a magical reality here

they watch waiting with cameras peering eyes

endlessly from dusk to sunrise!

 

Has somebody caught sight and their claim denied

without doubt not wrongly identified!

 

What does prowl beneath the deep dark waters?

Beneath!

None of them realised what lay beneath

in the nebulous caverns below

created by the incalculable mining shafts

zigzagging beneath the ground

where repulsive creatures had nested

unknown now totally infested!

 

The heavy rain caused saturation of fields

weakening the infrastructure

few realised the fragile surface eroding

existing in their daily routines

unaware of the approaching catastrophe

of which none could foresee!

 

Not in recorded history had it been so bleak

floods engulfed communities

rainfall increased authorities unable to cope

water seeping up from below

thinking the situation could not get worse

their position became perverse!

 

The ground beneath their feet now gave way

and the population fell into hell

the rout of humankind an unexpected horror

soon they would discover

those who had survived the brutal carnage

faced a demonic rampage!

 

Laying injured beasts spawned in darkness

rapidly violated their flesh

hiding out of the light as those able to move

ran blindly in every direction

but they were overwhelmed by the specter

of life were no respecter!

 

Some managed to reach the surface for help

received by military forces

who were preparing a major rescue attempt

uncertain of what to expect

before entering into the hostile environment

cautiously made their descent

 

Soon confronting beasts of an unknown origin

agile in the mud and blackness

unprepared for the battles and horrors to follow

thousands perished that first day

as the soldiers hurriedly retreated from a real hell

of which few survived to tell!

 

Not mythical flesh-eating fiends but an uncontrollable evil

festered beneath their feet!
