Excited!

The couple were excited their own home

a new house on a small estate

though near to a large countryside park

falling in love with its design

tranquil surroundings away from traffic

used to town hustle and bustle

but it was surprisingly cheap for location

then had no doubts on arrival

pulling up outside in hired furniture van

she saw a suspicious man!

 

Decided not to mention it to her husband

sure the light was dim

as the sun was very low in the evening sky

just happy to be here

covertly looked around nobody was there

soon forgot the sighting

they decided to unpack the following day

now wanted to play!

 

Breathed in the sweat smelling relaxing air

unable to get any sleep

walked along the fence of the vast park

heard animals in the distance

so different here still unsure of their move

saw a bright orb hovering

ahead darting about as if it was observing

soon became unnerving!

 

Those first feelings of belonging had faded

more orbs came into view

hugged each other every sound magnified

both could not understand

why it was deserted the houses in darkness

running back to the van

now in their brains just thoughts of escape

as ahead loomed a shape!

 

It was a few hours later when a police officer

spotted on a routine patrol

the furniture van doors open abandoned

no sign of any occupants

a search of the area was quickly instigated

and the occupants identified

creating a major enigma for investigation

as the story broke to the nation!

 

On that small rural housing estate discovered

all the people had disappeared

within a short time frame gone without trace

what had happened in this place?

Microwave Masts!

Nobody took any notice of the microwave masts

naturally thinking they were for a signal

for better mobile phone services rising demand

even when they were sprouting like weeds

no suspicions nor fears were being expressed

at that time the dangers not processed!

 

Wherever you turned another mast was planted

huge cables ominously snaked up to the top

placed within many populated residential areas

and above busy shopping centres world-wide

schools to were targeted for the masts to stand

it was though it had been pre-planned!

 

Soon complaints of ill-health and deaths emerged

even animals were not exempt from the scourge

authorities these worries just simply ignored

independent researchers used special detectors

accurately registering the microwave omissions

nobody nearby of the risks had their suspicions!

 

High readings were gathered going off the scale

yet there was an acceptance nothing we can do

they were placed no matter what was thought

so every day more will appear on the skyline

be aware of what damage that they do inflict

their purpose and effect not hard to predict!

The Neighbourhood!

Cars parked in a row at short intervals

suspicions were aroused!

In an area that was sedate and quiet

until the woman arrived.

Moving into the bungalow it changed

could she be deranged?

 

Uncertain of these unsavoury strangers

in the neighbourhood!

Slowly the tranquil mood was lost

compromised by gangs!

Intimidation and fear replaced the trust

followed by the lust.

 

Unchecked house owners were terrorized

and just wanted to escape.

At any price just to leave unharmed

generations expelled.

Their memories and beloved homes

now only the evil roams!

 

They never had to call the police for help

nor seen violence.

In this rural suburb of a growing city

those days had gone!

When families through honest labour

helped their neighbour!

 

Once it was nice to visit my place of birth

now something I dread.

Nobody I knew lives there any more

landmarks vandalised.

Good neighbourhoods now just a mess

where nobody cares less!

 

The neighbourhood I remember has long past!
