Drones!

High above us silently unnoticed they fly

watching spying often with deadly intent

being used in ever-increasing numbers

with no pilots in them to lose their lives

drones flying guided with superior skill

with perfect accuracy for the kill!

 

Drones watching waiting poised in the war

these craft soon thinking for themselves

blending in with birds and things up there

for us undetected as our lives they share

their own computer and no human control

what is the robots destined role?

 

The ultimate stealth aircraft small and lethal

carrying weapons and cameras

from fantasy to a fearsome reality they evolve

raining down their armory

like dragons on the people upon the ground

beasts with no warning or sound!

 

Now on the public a new scourge has emerged

small drones anybody can buy

with little legislation and no license required

few take any notice of the peril

flying freely ignoring dangers without any care

risking disasters and untold despair!

Hikers!

The hikers were beginning to find it very tough

as the forest became more dense

some of them experienced others the first trip

some wished they had not come

trees were whispering and in unison moved

their presence was not approved!

 

They were tiring as the undergrowth thickened

now all the tracks were covered

not taking long to realise they were trapped

every way looked the same

underfoot was becoming boggy and deep

the ground becoming steep!

 

Sloping down to a foul-smelling putrid pond

with animal tracks going in

they were being directed right to its edge

branches started breaking

from the tops of huge trees it got closer

conditions getting grosser!

 

Bunching up at the edge the bank crumbling

a dark object swimming

around as if this was waiting for them to fall in

giving way with their weight

tipping a hiker into the water covered slime

consumed in her prime!

 

So rapid no sounds were heard just the blood

changing the colour red

the rest did manage to grab thick twines

jumping to firmer ground

scrambling amongst the thick vegetation

beasts intent on their damnation!

 

Each hiker succumbing to overwhelming odds

several broke free and ran

not caring about injuries at their skin ripping

on thorns and sharp branches

not a soul heard their dying or begging pleas

as the last died in the trees!

 

The forest kept its secrets no witnesses to tell!

where now do their bodies dwell!

 

‘ Warning! Enter At Your Own Peril!
