Reeling back in surprise the man was unhurt
and now fired back at him
just managing to jump behind a dumpster
the mugger he had confronted
walking away as if his gun was a mere toy
being a cop was not all joy!
Must have had a bullet proof vest he thought
got up bruised and annoyed
headed back to write a report still puzzled
radioed in of the danger
as he drove by a convenient store observed
the perpetrator and was unnerved!
His gut feeling was telling him he was bad news
just as a scream made him stop
window wound down going slow no surprise
this time would be prepared
as ahead in the street lay a woman sprawled
to get away from her he called!
Yet again the man stood and turned but now
he fired back at the detective
who responded but to no avail unharmed
just walked down the street
who was this villain who did not seem to care
or human actions share!
Now more reports of an indestructible assailant
flooded into the headquarters
surely this being could not travel that fast
chaos took over the quiet town
increasing casualties were arriving at the A&E
nobody knew what it could be!
Sitting unable to move because of the traffic
saw a familiar figure pass
abandoning his car followed closely behind
but now its pace quickened
heading into a large modern office complex
his muscles began to flex!
Went into a lift the detective watching it rise
stopping at the top floor
risking going alone as he had no evidence
got into an adjoining lift
pressed the sixtieth button it quickly rose
as it neared he froze!
Out of his depth drew his service revolver
a jolt and the doors opened
bright lights greeted him along with a buzz
making his ears hurt
then a glass panel slid open with no warning
sent his adrenaline soaring!
A white coated figure came seeing him shouted
returning to the large laboratory
the detective boldly followed the panel closed
now trapped inside saw parts
of bodies hanging robotic certainly not organic
trapped slowly started to panic!
Security seemed to come at him from every quarter
was amazed how got within
darted through a doorway stunned at what was there
it was hundreds of robots
lined up exact replicas of the villain he followed here
now the situation became clear!
What seemed like laser beams were being fired at him
sparks flew to close for comfort
who the hell were these people colliding with one
coming to life tried grabbing him
eluding him started shooting back the bullets hit
a dry lined wall exploding time to split!
Fire was spreading around him searching for an exit
luckily saw a fire door in front
struck at speed feeling the pain he burst through
nearly falling down the concrete steps
heard the assailant’s close behind had to get out
the place was going to blow no doubt!
Nearing the ground floor heard an almighty bang
seconds later he was on the street
as parts of the buildings structure fell at his feet
fire engines and his colleagues
were arriving and the public fleeing for their lives
each looking shocked and surprised!
Moving away in disbelief at the carnage he created
was even more perplexed seeing
one of these robots striding through the confusion
realising it was sadly far from over
but their existence was now in the open to pursue
it was now his mission he knew!
