Hovering!

He sat there alone in the fast food restaurant

his arm was burning wanted shout

what was that thing hovering in the field

never seen anything like that

should have kept away why investigate

as his mouth started to salivate!

 

Tried drinking the coffee but was so thirsty

becoming agitated with the noise

certain others were watching him intently

heard a banging sound realised

his knees were hitting underside of the table

his mind and physical being unstable!

 

Just out walking the dog shit where was Jack

knew had to leave or would explode

knocking into people he no longer could see

wandered out onto the main road

bus driver said from nowhere was on the road

without any hesitation strode!

 

At the same moment a young couple discovered

a small dog barking at a field gate

taking a stroll on along a well-known lovers track

tried to get near the excited animal

who ran off into that empty field as if in pursuit

unsettled did not follow its route!

 

Been here on numerous occasions a rural haven

yet retreating eager to go home

heard the fearful cry that sounded like an animal

from a slow pace had the urge to run

from behind a noise like galloping horses on dirt

sensing danger they would be hurt!

 

Out of breath they got safely back to their car

clicking key fob to open doors

in a heightened state of panic both jumped in

would the engine start-up

relieved as it roared into life foot down they left

their emotions were bereft!

 

Where they had just departed the alien arrived

the taste for human prey instilled

wings spread drooling acid saliva through teeth

mercilessly sharp and pointed

cloaked returned to its hidden craft and lair

a malevolent being all were unaware!

 

Soon more would come of this ruthless breed!

Green Hills!

From the top of those steep sloping green hills

they sat relaxed on horseback to marvel

in awe at the natural beauty of unspoilt land

uncorrupted by the destruction of progress

taking away the virginity of the landscape

where creatures safely interacted unharmed

by callous hands in pursuit of their immoral gain

the countryside balance they did not retain!

 

With no tall grotesque buildings to sully the view

nor chimneys from factories regularly

spewing more deadly toxins to choke our lungs

above air clear from human impregnation

from more suspected elements of depopulation

weather harsh but the seasons defined

there before pollution and technology encased

our lives and the nightmare future to face!

Awoke!

Shivering he awoke in a public park all alone

on a hard wooden bench

damp and chilled to the bone being so scared

odd sounds surrounded him

depressed at his situation got up and walked

paranoid his own shadow stalked!

 

So stupid leaving behind such a happy lifestyle

too much for the wife to take

turning to drink to get through every hour

his reality began to disintegrate

also had two sons that he loved so very much

could take no more missed their touch!

 

Guilty for getting in this awful humiliating mess

dirty unwashed shuffling along

contact totally lost with them it seemed endless

gambled away money job and respect

could not take the indignity or guilt another day

confused could not see any other way!

 

By his side a willing listener a comforting smile

yet to anybody passing was solo

even advising him the best position for the noose

some hours later he was found dead

hanging from a high branch in a wooded park

a dog stared up with its loud pitiful bark!

 

The man grinning watched in his dark suit

had another soul completed the pursuit!

 

Then evaporated into the damp morning air!

Bigfoot!

Throughout the world legends abound

of creatures said to roam

remote areas of forests and wilderness

tracks found and foot prints

of huge creatures that are rarely seen

or myths that had never been!

 

Like those searching for proof of aliens

and intent ghost hunters

many seek this allusive beast Bigfoot

in inaccessible places

as keen and devoted like other seekers

in the quest for these creatures!

 

Like many Monster legends millions believe

though tracks are found

the theories usually prove to be a false trail

every country has its stories

the more remote harder to instigate a pursuit

which often bears no fruit!

 

Relentless there are dedicated teams hunting

to capture the evidence

resolute in bringing the undisputable validation

it is real and not a story

danger lurks without communication or support

as Bigfoot goes on being sort!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

The Detour!

The Detour arrow lights flashed on and off

as the car hurtled towards it

three desperate criminals intent on escape

behind the police converged

the stolen car swerved onto a quarry track

for them no turning back!

 

Bouncing violently on the potholed surface

constantly glancing behind

checking the progress of their law hunters

surprised when they halted

no longer in pursuit they heartily cheered

as the driver oversteered!

 

Finding themselves rolling over several times

coming to rest on its roof

shaken and bruised they crawled from the car

seconds later it exploded

all they could do was reassess the conditions

and their precarious positions!

 

Pitch black isolated looking at distant blue lights

uncertain what was unfolding

confused as to why nobody would venture near

through woods blundered forth

no longer confident or with arrogant contempt

for some reason now exempt!

 

Exposure and shock added to their condition

ever the sense of a presence

movement and snapping of fallen branches

unfamiliar sounds circled them

still having guns fired wildly into emptiness

no more could they careless!

 

Panicking headed away from the tree line

yet knew something roamed

tired sat to rest but huge shadows hovered

like phantoms homing in

began to feel trapped with no place to run

shattered their resistance done!

 

Then realised they were poised on the edge

of a what seemed like a quarry

rocks crumbling under their body weight

and the phantoms converging

fell backwards their screams reverberating

the following silence intoxicating!

 

The law enforcement agencies went in at dawn

to recover the bodies

nobody dared enter at night it was dangerous

this was a long cursed spot

where many unexplained deaths had transpired

and normal reality expired!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

Pursuit!

From a side street the powerful car skidded

into the teeming traffic

a police cruiser blues and two’s in pursuit

other vehicles swerving

causing chaos on the metropolis streets

where man and machine meets!

 

A murder had occurred  in a rough district

an urgent call was made

the unit arrived too late to preserve a life

observing two perpetrators

fired automatic weapons in their direction

officers dived to find protection!

 

The killers caused mayhem trying to escape

hitting countless vehicles

whether moving or stationary mattered not

they needed to change cars

being parked close to their present position

the next move needed precision!

 

Helicopters and many law agency vehicles

closed in on their location

the desperate men sped across a busy park

by the skin of their teeth

missed a boating lake got out near a fence

through undergrowth dense!

 

Two sports motor bikes were there waiting

in seconds both raced away

their exit planned headed down into sewers

no way could they be caught

their target a gang boss the most malevolent

countless deaths by his consent!

 

As they disappeared down into the murky depths

few knew both were agents

sent by a covert police authority to assassinate

and this was all preplanned

there were more targets on a volatile wanted list

dangers high with death they kissed!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

Highway Robbery!

The moon was high and so bright a concern

for the lone masked rider.

Sitting high on his powerful and frisky horse

waiting patiently to pounce.

Out of sight of the twisty main London road

with the devil he strode!

 

This was his first robbery for the highwayman

prepared to take at any cost.

Poverty and his stubborn pride got him here

rich pickings from passengers.

All he cared about as the adrenaline circulated

how the wealthy he hated!

 

From his vantage point saw it coming at speed

holding the reins very tight.

As the coach neared he came out to confront

but it had no intention to stop.

Making his fiery steed rear violently into the air

that made him curse and swear!

 

Had the opportunity gone by his own blunder

without delay went in pursuit!

Catching up at speed he heard a shot ahead

and the stagecoach slowed.

Arriving saw another rider a pistol in hand

definitely in command!

 

Passengers were ordered out without delay

he noticed the coachman.

Was going for his flintlock he shot him first

surprised his new rival fired.

Back at him thankfully it went past his head

being to intrigued to be dead!

 

Ending up assisting taking their possessions

terrified victims left at the scene.

Racing together to make a good get away

stopping in a hidden copse.

They faced each other and wearily unmasked

in complete surprise he basked.

 

In the surreal moonlight saw a beautiful woman

sitting calmly in his vision.

This was not her first time at highway robbery

she was not from a poor family.

Her motives were for the thrill and adventure

not easy to take in for sure.

 

Yet there was no anger it was if they had to meet

a bond grew from there on.

And a love that would overcome every barrier

for many years to come.

Though with no illusions their alliance could end

but together would transcend!

 

What happened to them is another tale to tell.
