Who?

Who is wandering our populated areas

many innocent people have vanished

anguished families have been in limbo

frightened where the young have gone

what is the number of the disappeared

gone most harmed it is sadly feared!

 

Anxious and desperate wait of the parents

knowing there is nothing they can do

always wondering why they are missing

empty spaces that have been left behind

sometimes closure when a body found

others hoping for a word or sound!

 

It is said often though awful maybe true

the abductors are somebody they knew

a friend or relative not a pleasant thought

anybody trusted could do such a thing

fearing the stranger not those very near

off guard as family members leer!

 

Keep your family close beware of strangers

humans a mystery even unto themselves

there are dark recesses it is said in the mind

that cannot be evaluated history has defined

those who have ventured down that evil path

its written must face their gods wrath!

 

Mankind surely is the worst predator and beast

upon all living things its hunger doth feast!

Changing The Rules!

The retail park was bustling with activity

with its shops and restaurants.

Multiplex cinema and a bingo hall to

with vast car parks filling.

Another day of the human daily rituals

nature was changing the rules!

 

Creatures forced into smaller areas of land

unable to walk natural routes.

Until now the largest predator the fox

it’s food chain now depleted.

Turning to man for the main food source

was the next evolutionary course!

 

Cunning living up to a revered reputation

adapting to new surroundings.

The once vast countryside ripped apart

integrating with other species.

Escaped large cats becoming acquainted

their DNA mingled and tainted!

 

Their size grew and instincts heightened

and taste for human flesh!

They now started to roam the park

soon as it became dusk.

A pack  emerged from their hidden lair

all seeing eyes  prey unaware!

 

The cinema busy likewise places to eat

the smell driving them on.

As aggression rises to striking pitch

a lone male late for a date.

Circled and ambushed by each beast

ready to enjoy the feast!

 

Dragging him to their underground lair

where mutants gathered.

Mankind seemed oblivious to this threat

as many more went missing!

The creatures numbers rapidly multiplied

man’s dominance defied!

 

Below the surface the revolution had begun!

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!
