Learnt!

They each learnt that day the hard way

maybe their homes were not the best

nor parents who cared what they did

from each other found that support

egging them on to violate others lives

with despicable disregard for feelings

not caring what property was damaged

or those innocent people they outraged!

 

Well known for their anti-social behaviour

that was escalating into brutality

certain nothing could stop their rampage

met at the park to drink and smoke

weed shouting felt they were invincible

knew an elderly man lived close by

throwing stones at his windows for fun

but this day their rampage would be done!

 

Within this house there was an evil entity

that wanted to take his soul and escape

its eternal imprisonment on this ground

the old man was aware of its presence

but was strong in his stubborn resistance

but hatred at the torment of the juveniles

his will gone they would lose their smiles!

 

The group jeered throwing anything at hand

as part of their nightly ritual onslaught

they could see him sitting near the window

which excited their lust for blood even more

coming boldly to the glass and banging

saw him slowly slump onto the frayed carpet

for a second silent then a cheer of celebration

mercilessly with contempt at his desecration!

 

Thinking it best to scarper from this crime scene

as sirens could be heard approaching

but found they were paralysed unable to escape

heard a door open and forced to turn

there stood the old man grinning eyes pitch black

helpless were forced in they had no comeback!

 

As the police arrived expecting the unruly youths

were surprised to see the house on fire

soon the fire brigade arrived discovering inside

just one body of the owner nobody else

even after witnesses told them what they had seen

the group were never ever seen again

no clues of the mysterious disappearances detected

the truth of what happened no one suspected!

 

The house was renovated but tenants would not stay

always saying something unseen inside did prey!

Ale House!

Sure the reason the door was warped

had to be the aged wood

eighteen forties building material

altered from a corner shop

into another working man’s ale house

he lived here with his spouse.

 

The new landlord of this establishment

in urgent need of an upgrade

solidly built thought it had potential

constructed of stern stuff

on entering had an uneasy sensation

certain just imagination!

 

But when his  pet and guard dog faltered

at the entrance to a room

where the wooden frame was warped

sitting rigid and whimpering

it made him more aware of the ambience

then the problem not immense!

 

He often saw the dog sitting there alone

but one day his wife asked

to look inside the room needing storage

reluctantly opened the door

she was not bothered about going inside

to her no fear to hide!

 

True  was empty dusty with a damp odour

but ideal for the purpose

one day heard a noise the door half-open

was brave and glanced in

just as a glass vase flipped off a small chair

giving him a big  scare!

 

Like the dog kept his distance from the area

until he noticed after closing

preparing to take the dog for his nightly walk

he was nowhere to be found

until his wife frantically came to him worried

to that room both scurried!

 

Shaking said their dog was distressed inside

upon their arrival outside

sure enough heard the barking and howling

the door completely shut

no idea how this could become sealed tight

or the dog inside full of fright!

 

It should have made an almighty loud bang

but nothing was heard

and why would a scared animal venture in

not easy breaking solid wood

the dog ran passed never settling again

the couple could not remain!

 

Whatever it was concerned them no more!
