Imposing!

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!

Flying Creatures!

Tales of flying creatures had always been told

in that part of the country

as the centuries passed they became legends

ghoulish stories handed down

but the deep fear and suspicion remained

the paranoia maintained!

 

Into this environment a family came to live

work had located them here

unaware of the dark arts still being practiced

to them a fresh start

hoping to be accepted into the local fold

their coming was foretold!

 

Their house was on the outskirts of the village

next to a dense creepy forest

from the first night the children were terrified

frantically telling what they saw

a flying beast swooping above their heads

escaping their clothes in shreds!

 

Running inside in a petrified state yelling

hiding under the table

finding this was their only safe place here

they could hear it on the roof

said it looked like a huge horned butterfly

black with a screeching cry!

 

Thinking the kids minds were on overdrive

but something had attacked

staying in until it was daylight once more

when the parents ventured out

no movement or sound glancing around

their pet dog dead on the ground!

 

There was a predator near what could it be

the husband had heard tales

that moth like beings supposed to exist

was it true or fiction

within only a day were lucky to be alive

what didn’t want them to survive?

 

Would this family escape or each expire

as the screeching pitch became higher!
