Choking!

The rain did not fall anymore on earth

nor the sun shine brightly

no birds sang or fish swam in the water

mostly dead like the population

hard to breath in choking polluted air

laying with that pleading stare!

 

On the plains only the strong  survived

the wind never stopped

sunken wells still had drinkable water

animal life to consume

a lone man wife and child by his side

from mutants had to hide!

 

The radiation levels were rapidly increasing

nobody was told of the leaks

into the many vast oceans and atmosphere

from nuclear power stations

built for the energy needs claimed it was safe

in them the public had too much faith!

 

Through all the horrors and misery imposed

on an unsuspecting people

somehow this family had stayed together

loving living a simple life

had made them overseer so much despair

as into oblivion did stare!

 

As if a greater power was protecting them

with death spread all around

somehow they thrived in the harsh climate

soon a second child was born

a daughter entered their small magical clan

as if by a preordained plan!

 

Was this a miracle and new beginning?

Nuclear Tests!

Each tree trembled from an unnatural vibration

in front the shortcut grass

at first glance seemed empty no humans around

but a rhythmic rustling sound

the grass no longer green as millions of worms

covered it like visible germs!

 

Normally filled with families happily playing

but darkness made them leave

a vast area near wide barren desert plains

unknown to most as a test site

for  nuclear experiments decades in the past

soon repercussions would be cast!

 

Radiation had seeped down to the sandy base

and preserved fertile soil

part of plans to research radio-active fallout

yet failed to realise consequences

worms absorbing the lethal product mutating

a disaster in the making!

 

From their natural state transformed rapidly

into flesh-eating creatures

searching for prey surfacing on the grassland

sensing it was nearby

as the park rangers unwittingly approached

as on deadly ground encroached!

 

No indication as they walked to their demise

just empty bloody uniforms

slithering on until the dawn leaving a gory trail

as visitors came to find

the area cordoned off as scientists investigated

and cause of the horror deliberated!

 

The mutated worms had gone back below ground

to the cool and darkness

not until the next night would the slaughter begin

their time slot was short

in solving the abomination they unwittingly created

before it truly escalated!

 

The hours were ticking by as the night was upon them!

The Isolated Ranch!

On the isolated ranch few visitors ever came

the father a hard worker.

Inherited the vast ten thousand acre spread

from his strict parents.

His wife two sons and a daughter lived here

conditions rather austere.

 

Not a wilderness to be wandering on your own

where herds of cattle roamed.

And stories of  monsters and ghosts were told

once it was open plains.

Where native indians and buffaloes were prey

when settlers began to stray!

 

Over the many generation of human hardship

unexplained events occurred!

Their live stock was being found mutilated

making them become more alert.

Blood drained the bodies surgically dissected

detected when closely inspected!

 

Also it was common to see lights coming down

and then rapidly rising again!

What it was nothing could be actually proved

unmarked helicopters hovered!

A blanket of silence and misinformation existed

official reason they resisted!

 

knowing there were creatures of unknown origin

finding foot prints of weird design.

Father and sons while camping saw large shapes

scurrying in the shadows.

The wife and daughter back from dance class

big eyes watched from the grass!

 

They knew around their isolated ranch on the plains

this unsolved mystery still remains!
