It had an imposing image for a new hospital
though in developement accidents
during construction of the district infirmary
even on its opening day
injuries caused by more structural damage
was annoying at this stage!
Nothing would get in the way of the progress
prestige pride most of all money
forced the building on no matter the sacrifice
only a few knew the real truth
how it was pushed through breaking the law
not for a second did they pause!
The land was not of a suitable consistency
as beneath it had been excavated
some years before an object was retrieved
quickly by an unknown group
who arrived rapidly taking it from the site
in the middle of a summer’s night!
Locals were never informed of what it was
or who had whisked it away
rumours of an alien craft and high radiation
were never answered
it had always had a mystical evil reputation
and a strong feeling of intimidation!
Nobody would go near the open land in fear
so it caused a huge debate
when the new hospital was then approved
now the day was finally here
its doors were opened and with trepidation
entered with a nervous hesitation!
Impressed by the splendour they gathered
in the huge entrance lobby
the medical director was on a raised podium
cynically smiling at them
the commotion was faint at first few heard
soon none could hear a word!
Staff not at the opening started shouting
as if warning of danger
screams became shrill as the groups met
mayhem rapidly ensued
creatures like large moths were overhead
swooping as people fled!
Grabbing anybody with their long claws
taking them up high
dropping them on to the polished floor
crashing onto the crowd
those who could get out were attacked
beasts with weapons hacked!
From the grounds other snake-like things
slid towards those trapped
senior directors tried to make a getaway
found there was no escape
with so many of the dignitaries present
were hell bound sent!
As it had begun it ended the beasts vanished
leaving devastation behind
everyone concerned with its creation had gone
the hospital was unsafe
those still alive got away never to return here
a supernatural power involved clear!
It now stands abandoned a reminder of events
a grotesque cursed building
that only the foolish would even contemplate
approaching let alone enter
strange sightings and weird sounds reported
sceptics say natural sounds distorted!
No explanation for the events have been given
for investigators their curiosity is driven!
