Exposed!

The wind lashed with force across the land

which exposed the metal cover

covertly hidden from any human curiosity

on restricted military land

where lethal chemicals were secretly stored

the public would be appalled!

 

Underneath a large concrete and steel base

nuclear weapons there as well

primed ready for an immediate deployment

and facilities for an army

guarded twenty four seven through the year

a secret facility so near!

 

A vast complex not designed for public use

now had a raging fire

evacuation plans immediately set in motion

to clear the population

as it was becoming an unavoidable holocaust

where thousands could be lost!

 

Though their biggest worry was the radiation

if the missiles were ignited

a story not far from the real frightening truth

was broadcast as army and police

started the evacuation as the fire was fought

knowing the situation was fraught!

 

Even as the people were forced from the area

the first explosion came

that showered the air with the deadly radiation

followed by lethal chemicals

there was no chance for the fleeing population

as it spread all over the nation!

 

News agencies reported a major chemical blast

had left hundreds dead

with countless numbers also critically injured

a state of emergency declared

the authorities deception was firmly in place

once more deceiving the human race!

 

From then on martial law was upon us imposed

with a traumatized nation ruled unopposed!

Remembrance!

Each November we always remember

our military forces lost.

From all the wars and trouble spots

young lives taken away!

Their loved ones never again to see

keeping their countries free!

 

Remembrance day the emotions are high

thinking of the fallen.

Some in their teens joined for adventure

travel and companionship.

But the reality of war zones was not fun

in the rain cold and hot sun.

 

Whatever the conditions they had to confront

the horrors and brutality of war.

Families cry and mourn with the memories

the list of names ever-growing.

Man revels in seeking new ways to destroy

something they seem to enjoy!

 

No matter what nation their lives should count

each had a history a soul.

Not just names on a plague or unmarked grave

individuals with much to give!

With hopes ambitions a destiny to follow

and those left to feel sorrow.

 

Remembrance and respect for the lost

the injured knowing the list will grow!

 

Their ultimate sacrifice we must never forget!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
