Wind!

A wind came unusual in this sheltered hamlet

yet blew in with a vengeance

from where this chilling wind had descended

a mystery know where to hide

it seemed to get within them as if it was living

the effect so unforgiving!

 

Never warm the air now thick still engulfing

every living creature and plant

withering as each one stood helplessly by

beyond comprehension it ruled

were slaves totally helpless in its action

no way to make our extraction!

 

Like a plague changing from lush green

grass with fertile soil and crops

to a dried shrivelled and barren land

and death was soon to follow

from the valley to the distant hilltop

life came to a complete stop!

 

Those who survived numbered but a few

never gave up hope the wind

and pestilence would one day be smitten

for them the day never came

for centuries it spread devastating earth

before mankind’s rebirth!

 

Then from the sky of constant darkness

it began to slowly clear

and the long forgotten sun shone through

and the decimated wilderness

no more bombarded by this pervasive

wind life sucking and erosive!

 

As it came it went and life began anew!

Changing The Rules!

The retail park was bustling with activity

with its shops and restaurants.

Multiplex cinema and a bingo hall to

with vast car parks filling.

Another day of the human daily rituals

nature was changing the rules!

 

Creatures forced into smaller areas of land

unable to walk natural routes.

Until now the largest predator the fox

it’s food chain now depleted.

Turning to man for the main food source

was the next evolutionary course!

 

Cunning living up to a revered reputation

adapting to new surroundings.

The once vast countryside ripped apart

integrating with other species.

Escaped large cats becoming acquainted

their DNA mingled and tainted!

 

Their size grew and instincts heightened

and taste for human flesh!

They now started to roam the park

soon as it became dusk.

A pack  emerged from their hidden lair

all seeing eyes  prey unaware!

 

The cinema busy likewise places to eat

the smell driving them on.

As aggression rises to striking pitch

a lone male late for a date.

Circled and ambushed by each beast

ready to enjoy the feast!

 

Dragging him to their underground lair

where mutants gathered.

Mankind seemed oblivious to this threat

as many more went missing!

The creatures numbers rapidly multiplied

man’s dominance defied!

 

Below the surface the revolution had begun!

Written!

There are countries written about in religious text

where ancient sites stand

identified through connection with holy books

that are wondrous and sacred

even after the centuries of constant hatred and war

now peace is what they need more!

 

But with conflicts embedded into hearts and minds

misery has become part of living

holy places to millions and home to millions more

in a these vast ravaged landscapes

many beliefs tearing these nations into shreds

as the violence continuously to spreads!

 

Peaceful coexistence seems to be only a theory

families killed and separated

amongst the olive groves palm trees and deserts

the proud humble and the meek

constant fear in the lands religions held so dear

can once again a saviour appear?

 

The familiar sounds of explosions and gunfire

how many more lives do we let expire?

 

Can mankind ever find the road to peace?

The President A Nation!

The president has been re-elected to rule

another four-year term.

Thought of as the most powerful nation

but there are changes.

In the early 21 century increasing doubt

with the economic drought!

 

Wars conflicts and major internal tragedy

had taken a terrible toll.

On this nations structure and world role

as the major driving force.

Now the balance is tilting else where

to write this should I dare?

 

Secrets and the conspiracy theories mount

lack of agencies communication!

Finance’s shifting to distant shorelines

yet the world expects!

Military and economic backing at any cost

no matter the humans lost!

 

From those times of the super power status

austere times have returned.

Internal turmoil among political parties

has unsettled the balance.

A fraught and nervous world of disorder

tension mounts on every border!

 

Natures the dominant threat to all of mankind

ways to embrace its power should we not find?

 

We look to the future with a glazed stare

in a fragile society we all share!

 

We can only pray that sanity prevails!

They Said!

They said it would happen yet nobody believed

the end of mankind!

How many times had we heard that prophecy

and took  no notice.

The dates came and went without major trouble

no increase in laying rubble!

 

The predictions continued then the weather changed

disasters became more regular!

At first we thought nothing a little concerned

but soon became alarmed!

Temperatures rose and the solar flares began

could it be the end of our lifespan?

 

More quakes and floods swamped more countries

communication came to a stop!

The fire storms engulfed more of the dry land

civilisation quickly died out!

Small communities kept going on somehow

but I am with last group now!

 

Why we have been spared is really a miracle

maybe god chose us few!

The pioneers of a new cycle of human birth

with more respect to mother earth!

 

From the ashes of a corrupt civilisation we come!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
