Street light!

The street light flickered above her head

just thought it faulty

walked on down the well-lit pavement

then at the fifth post

went out with a bang followed by the rest

a tightness in her chest!

 

The crowds surrounding her became silent

from a loud happy crowd

a forced silence and uncertainty spread

what sounded like gunfire

created a panic as screams filled the air

of the growing danger all aware!

 

Glass windows shattered amongst city lights

mayhem ensued nobody knew

darkness filled the pedestrian walkways

as injured lay sprawled

masked angry figures moved quickly around

crouched low to the ground!

 

Impossible to tell if they were of human origin

in the beginning just a few

but the number rapidly grew firing weapons

that did not look familiar

those who tried to escape were hit by a beam

fell without even a scream!

 

From the sky lights blinded yet deathly quiet

many were herded together

the woman was forced to stand she knew

this was no alien invasion

she had never before seen a real android

that of human emotions were void!

 

But it had been reported many had escaped

from a military facility

now able to think being far more intelligent

the public were told

they had been captured the danger contained

order had been maintained!

 

A craft landed and people were forced onboard

loud explosions started

the army and police arrived causing more panic

helicopters now hovered

in a flash the androids ship was hit and exploded

hope of rescue eroded!

 

Taking just a few hostages they fled the carnage

followed by the troops

many bodies lay around yet none of the robots

littered the bloody scene

made by man as an indestructible military force

news said from an unknown source!

 

The woman walked back fires now lit her way

guided by uniformed officers

distant explosions filled the smoke polluted air

sirens whaled incessantly

paramedics attended the wounded and dead

she dreaded the future ahead!

 

Robot wars no longer science fiction but reality!

Attack!

A busy London street on a normal day

people coping with daily toil.

Warmer than usual in summer clothes

in an unpredictable society.

The car hit a man others saw his plight

then witnessed a shocking sight!

 

Out of this vehicle two males ran up to him

shouting weapons in hands!

Maybe thinking  another road rage attack

this was soon dispelled.

Confused at just what was going on here

from close range began to peer!

 

In disbelief saw them drag their victim

more to the centre of the road.

Start raining down on him vicious blows

with meat cleaver and knives!

On a busy day butchered a human being

with all the world seeing!

 

Terrorism of the shocking and crudest kind

they were known it was said.

How safe are the public still unexplained

going about daily tasks!

Unaware who is out there roaming free

that none of us can see!

 

Man’s depravity shown openly on this day

images that can never go away!

 

May I send my deepest sympathy to the soldier

and all his family and friends.

 

Man’s evil has no limits!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
