A Farce!

There was so much happening it became frightening

life was never easy but we coped

money tight bills always a headache to regularly pay

there were never ending hostilities

the news became much less uplifting stories bleak

in twenty seventeen got to a peak!

 

Reportedly down to terrorists or an unknown cause

bombs knives and gun attacks

even vehicles used to maim and kill a major fire to

the people becoming fraught

confused and out of control people became divided

less support to the masses provided!

 

Like an open sore the rich became a source of anger

as they could afford anything

owning large properties as the rest were priced out

jobs were going as robotics

replaced them in the work place and food sparse

an equal society was truly a farce!

 

The once rare sight of armed police became normal

soldiers to increased unabated

restricted access to the internet and social media

the news on television and radio

words became more phony as the same news shared

for a real nineteen eighty-four were prepared!

 

From the light mankind was plunged into the dark matrix!

Explosion!

A huge explosion that knocked him down

forcibly hitting the marble wall

no warning given as the building shattered

around him deafened by the blast

vomiting and gasping from dust and smoke

began to think he would choke!

 

In the hotel lobby with friends and others

guests and staff happily talking

such a headache and pain in both his legs

was quickly able to stand

disorientated he almost fell on a body part

as the scene tried to depart!

 

Ears ringing blinded by his pouring blood

through thick pulverized concrete

saw a glimmer of light as more explosions

were occurring far above him

a fireman came helping him out into sunlight

quickly removing him from the site!

 

From a vantage point inside an ambulance

he watched the skyscraper

disintegrate before his aching sore eyes

ground shook dust engulfed

once busy roads hidden in a deathly smog

that their lungs did clog!

 

After he had witnessed this appalling carnage

he quickly lost consciousness

the enormity of this major event developed

as a shocked world watched

a mystery still remains as other buildings fell

on that day it felt they were in hell!

 

He never woke up one more victim added to the many!

 

Still today it is assumed terrorists this act did invoke!

 

Could This Really Have Happened?

Mortality!

There are times when our mortality is really felt

traumatic experiences as in wars

when for those whom you care do not return

or an unexpected terrorist act

without warning are taken in everyday life

this is becoming more rife!

 

The moment of the funeral cortege and draped

or flower covered coffins

that empty feeling loved ones forever missing

those growing epitaphs

annual memorial services and minute silence

recharges our defiance!

 

Never forgotten they live on within us all evermore!

Aftermath!

Another day of much interaction between people

a more temperate climate

an air of happiness and a harmony abounded

streets crowded with shoppers

that opened up into a large communal space

with tables and chairs in place!

 

The terrorists blended in with everybody else

no suspicion or worries

nor did they see him receive from a woman

wearing a long summer coat a gun

or from his backpack swiftly fit a cartridge clip

and his calm demeanor flip!

 

Within seconds targeting and spraying the crowd

those hit falling to the ground

joy and harmony gone as in blind panic scattered

the gunman running and shooting

as if knowing in which direction he wanted to head

leaving the wounded and dead!

 

What seems like an eternity the sirens can be heard

yet through the alleyways he runs

with no opposition except a few foolhardy men

trying in vain to stop the rampage

as police armed units now converge on his position

to kill him the only decision!

 

Within what seemed hours but only thirty minutes

the terrorist lay still in the road

while the medics and police accesses the aftermath

of another senseless attack

on the innocent for some perverted and evil cause

none present allowed their resolve to pause!

 

Another search started urgently for the perpetrators

who had caused more appalling murders!

 

In memory to all the innocent fallen in a world that

should know peace love and unity!

Plane Crash!

He paced in circles not knowing what to do

just being told really awful news.

His wife and son both killed in a plane crash

this was impossible to take in!

As he waited heard it was a terrorist attack

within the hour were due back.

 

Looking up at the arrival board an empty space

where the time had just been.

Not enough money for the three to go together

recently being made redundant.

Waving as he watched them get onto the plane

heading back to catch the train.

 

There were no survivors on that long haul flight

surrounded now by others grieving!

Made even worse as the tragedy was no accident

his grief a rising emotion.

Waiting with others for news and the liaison team

tears flowed like a mountain stream.

 

On his mobile phone listened to his wife’s voice

it was a message she’d left.

Excitedly telling him they’d be back soon

if only he had heard it ring.

She was only thirty-two their son just four

but he would see them no more!

 

Surprised how many families had now gathered

each with the same expression.

Lives had been changed generations obliterated

a vacuum made by a few!

He could not understand the terrorists cold act

there was no answer.

All he knew his world had completely changed

his families funerals to be arranged!

 

My beloved wife and son rest in peace.
