Though claustrophobic agreed to enter the cave
his girlfriend keen to go on the tour
she did not know his phobia he tried to act brave
assured himself it would be fine
but at the sight of the dark damp sloping interior
sensed his increasing hysteria!
There was eight in the group waiting for clothing
helmets and a bright headlight
rumbling sounds and faint tremors under foot
made him want to turn and run
but everybody else were becoming so excited
his partner was really delighted!
To soon the guide gathered them inside the cave
giving compulsory talk on risks
and to stay close keeping to the designated route
as there were falling rocks
as he listened he thought he heard an odd sound
not happy being underground!
He followed trying to look interested for his girl
realising how deep it was getting
the wooden fencing and walkways were rickety
every word echoed around
those vast chambers it was a different world
without warning a rock was hurled!
The group stopped people screamed as it hit
on the path just up ahead
sounding like thunder as the guide shouted
for everybody not to panic
though did sustain a facial cut a piece of rock
was an unexpected shock!
From then on their situation became terminal
from all sides hideous beasts
crawled down the steep sharp rocks converging
they all turned running back
one a man crashed through the railings and fell
down into depths of hell!
Grabbing his girlfriend headed in the dim lighting
as he thoughts was the way
back to the surface screaming for him slowdown
but so paranoid did not listen
until he felt a violent jolt that made come to a halt
the reason for this sought!
In disbelief was holding on to her severed arm
the rest of her was gone
before he could take another step was facing
something he had never seen
a humanoid creature with huge blank eyes
it lunged nobody heard his cries!
Razor sharp teeth then ripped out his throat
as he was quickly overwhelmed
the corpses were taken back to their nest
upon the surface concern
that all communication had been terminated
no problems had been indicated!
The company had just bought this franchise
not being told of its bad history
so were oblivious to the carnage in the cave
as a rescue team prepared to enter
without the knowledge of what awaited below
into the entrance they did go!
