The Road!

Road surface was breaking up poor maintenance

along the verges much debris

where there had been many road traffic accidents

as cars passed at high-speed

with no thought of the danger that lurked ahead

where there had been many dead!

 

Sure they were protected in their metal boxes

immune from dying or injury

surrounded by safety features they charge

everything outside was unreal

the electronics efficiently executed control

but onboard computers with no soul!

 

As the surface crumbled tyres compensated

trying hard yet failing to grip

potholes evermore forming as roads failed

councils bleating they had no money

yet motorists paying large sums in fuel duty

and taxes bringing in lots of booty!

 

This is then diverted into many other projects

policing has today rapidly declined

as cars often chosen as modes of transport

increasingly used as weapons

for some they are their prefered killing machine

this disregard for life obscene!

 

Without a license insurance and any conscience

drive after drinking and drug taking

teenager racers to charge at high-speed for fun

thinking they are invincible to dying

too often in tragic circumstances lives are lost

futures hopes and dreams tossed!

 

Many drive reflecting on their attitude to life!

Plane!

Had never been down this road before

a clear humid day  few clouds

noticed a plane ahead flying so slow

that for a few seconds stopped

surely that could not be it was illogical

had heard about it did recall!

 

Saw a video thought it must be C.G.I

so he had seen it for himself

but actually never thought one day

would see a real one hover

ran off the road hitting a sandy bank

under the car a worrying clank!

 

At that moment he was concentrating

on what looked like a plane

a further shock awaited it vanished

a clear sky it was not there

had to get out of the passenger door

nothing was there anymore!

 

On his own could not share this moment

watched as another plane rose

from the isolated desert airport close by

took outs binoculars from the boot

zoomed in on this craft it seemed blurred

no sound at all could be heard!

 

Quickly got his phone had to try and record

as it passed silently overhead

the shape changed from a plane to saucer

but fading from his direct view

it morphed back into a its original outline

what he had seen could not define!

 

Sent the images he captured to a website

that explored unexplained sightings

hoping somebody may have an explination

from that day was perturbed

at what was flying in the skies everyday

and the unknown forces at play!

Encounter!

On his way to meet friends at a hotel

set in a valley amongst trees

the journey took him on lonely roads

untouched and unspoilt

elements of magic and ancient legends

around the dips and bends!

 

Now dusk wished he was not on his own

eyes tiring in the gloom

hindered by a thickening mist in the valley

the radio crackled annoyingly

ahead saw somebody walking in the road

at a good pace they strode!

 

Approaching seemed to walk into his path

yet no sound of impact felt

even driving slow could not avoid a collision

coming to an emergency stop

concerned had to reverse back to be sure

frantically had to explore!

 

Hesitantly got out into the swirling moist mist

glad he brought the torch

searched in a frenzied manner a long stretch

of  road and grass verge

nothing was there no body of man or beast

then all rationality ceased!

 

Petrified to be there what had he really seen

heard a noise what was around

quickly got in the car accelerating forward

not caring visibility was poor

until his speed made him swerve just missing

the car a tree nearly kissing!

 

Inches from its base halted spooked drove on

the faint lights of the hotel

came into a weary man’s gaze a relieved sigh

the entrance was approaching

parking headed to meet the others inside

fearful with them had to confide!

 

Certain the encounter was real not a memory

maybe a prowling spectre

though an unknown element was with him

had a perception it had come

his skin began to crawl feeling sick and cold

for them all the horror would unfold!

 

The mist thickened around the hotel as they came!
