They Came!

Just a pleasant stroll in the early morning

heading to an open field so quiet

the young energetic dog lively on its run

then from nowhere they came

creatures with large bulging eyes and grey

not here with the pet to play!

 

In the rising mist in eery silence revealed

as the dog stopped running away

there in disbelief could not take in the sight

instinctively taking steps back

knowing their presence must be detected

this event totally unexpected!

 

She knew not from whence the beasts came

composure hard to sustain

reached her pickup truck heard the sound

of her dog but did not return

engine would not start as the grey creature

on her windscreen did feature!

 

Dead emotionless eyes stared directly at her

in the glove compartment

reached for a handgun instinctively aimed

the shell exploded out

shattering the screen and the aliens head

before the truck the body spread!

 

There were too many she was overwhelmed

struggling was dragged away

screams unheard from a farmhouse nearby

witnesses saw a metallic craft

hovering in the sky then in an instance gone

few aware of the phenomenon!

 

A farmer out before the break of a new dawn

discovered the damaged truck

close by a pistol lay discarded on the grass

near a black sticky gunge

nothing else was there to be seen or heard

fearful of what had occurred!

 

No bodies were found the mystery remains

the sightings from then on increased

officials said it must be weather or planes

denied anybody was missing or deceased!

Warning!

There had been a major storm warning given

flooding  added to the devastation

a coastal community hit by its merciless fury

a miracle that nobody was killed

cameras recording it all from high ground

every sight every sound!

 

Amongst all the debris and filthy surging water

a new horror began to emerge

initially transparent reptilian things scrambled

climbing with speed and agility

onto the buildings at first almost unheeded

no obstacle their progress impeded!

 

Not until the camcorders zoomed in close

were the aliens closely observed

with ease several quickly moving away

did the human curiosity grow

was this yet another unforeseen scourge

that we would battle to purge?

 

Amongst such a traumatic catastrophic event

an unknown phantasm came

leaving everybody fearful who witnessed it

what had been seen a mystery

even more disturbing where had they gone

just what was this phenomenon?

 

No more were detected but fear had spread

another terror out there to dread!
