The Lake!

On the large lake rising like a monolith

the disused diving board

had an unsettling image to they eye

in a popular public park

the once polluted water now teeming

with wild life and youngsters

in small canoes laughing and splashing

as on the water paddles bashing!

 

With cyclists touring around the lakeside

walkers taking in the views

dog owners chatting as their pets ran

couples in the warm air

happily sit talking watching children play

unaware of a life form mutating

adapting to its environment and spreading

on waters edge humans treading!

 

None were aware this danger was that near

the weather grew extremely hot

a fine green mesh oozed out of the water

creeping towards groups walking by

dogs senses aroused growling jumping back

owners alerted noticed spores popping

as toxins were released many folk did inhale

any attempts to escape did fail!

 

Pandemonium ensued as those able tried to flee

back from the unseen dangers

soon the whole park was rapidly evacuated

and everybody was rounded up

all held in quarantine tents and hazard suits

covered the popular beauty spot

many were taken away in special transport

as the answers were urgently sort!

 

The stories of an alien invasion were suppressed

so not to cause mass hysteria

the park is still closed without any explanation

the tensions from family friends

who wanted to know what was happening

waited on as there were rumours

more sites were effected the public in the dark

what had really been found in the park?

 

As I write there is a sombre mood never seen before!

Future Cops!

Standing like a monolith looking down observing

like a god watching his flock

now middle-aged commander of the station

situated near a violent district

here the law had become totally ineffective

cops had changed the perspective!

They showed no mercy none was ever returned

an army in a battle zone

like knights of a distant passed into battle

fully protected by armour

fitted with laser cannons for lethal strikes

in super cars on motorbikes!

Gone those days of hope for individual justice

cops were on the offensive

prisons were often blocked off city districts

law enforcement was privatised

leaving the poor to resolve their disputes

in rubbish and broken statutes!

The law was designed to protect just the rich

from the once equal citizens

governments hidden in protected enclaves

living a privileged existence

future cops hired to administer their bidding

for the rest had become forbidding!

After the predicted collapse of world economies

the mega rich took control

the depression caused more mayhem and war

policing the masses paramount

reverting back to lords and serfs the only rule

between the two sides a duel!

Future cops had become the elites enforcer

as the battle lines were drawn

armies still headed the major fight of nations

but within countries borders

for now they were rulers of their own domain

rebellion growing harder to contain!
