Shattered!

Stressed took a stroll noticed no insects

could not detect any bees or butterfly’s

filling the scene worryingly in decline

relaxed gently sat on a grassy hill-top

over looking the fields and small town

but the calm was soon to be shattered

and his fortunes would soon turn sour

as what he thought was a rare insect

with his vision did suddenly connect!

 

Annoying it flew very close to his head

had to stand and up from his position

making no difference as now followed

soon there were more flying along to

swatting at them one seemed to strike

landing on his naked arm a sharp jab

hitting it with reflex action plummeted

down onto dusty well trodden footpath

curious decided to inspect this nasty foe

the consequences then did not know!

 

Gasped as on close inspection discovered

that this was not a natural living bug

but a minute very intricate type of drone

designed like a mosquito held in his hand

soon seemed to move and then flew away

he began to feel so unwell and collapsed

found by passing cyclists hugging the earth

taking some time to get any medical support

the couple in this dire scenario were caught!

 

Delirious he kept mumbling insects not real

nobody attending knew what he meant

far to incoherent they did not understand

a few days later in the intensive care unit

his body succumbed to unknown toxins

the only clue a puncture wound on his skin

all organs had completely ceased to function

to the coroner a frustrating puzzle emerged

his theories of cause made him feel disturbed!

 

Especially when told the facts were classified!

 

Could this really be true?

Green Hills!

From the top of those steep sloping green hills

they sat relaxed on horseback to marvel

in awe at the natural beauty of unspoilt land

uncorrupted by the destruction of progress

taking away the virginity of the landscape

where creatures safely interacted unharmed

by callous hands in pursuit of their immoral gain

the countryside balance they did not retain!

 

With no tall grotesque buildings to sully the view

nor chimneys from factories regularly

spewing more deadly toxins to choke our lungs

above air clear from human impregnation

from more suspected elements of depopulation

weather harsh but the seasons defined

there before pollution and technology encased

our lives and the nightmare future to face!

Early!

Early on that morning was so calm and sunny

as they set off on their journey

though the sky was filled with chemical trails

that did not fade but stayed

it was a big controversy they were being laced

with toxins the rulers embraced!

 

Kept this in mind as the day began to heat up

soon came upon traffic

decided to take a detour along  quieter

empty country lanes

were lost without phones and navigation

began to cause frustration!

 

Upon an abandoned village their first stop

this they did not see or expect

until their car ran over the vandalised sign

reading contaminated zone

a red skull and crossed bones made it grim

though a bright day here was dim!

 

Decided it best to leave without stopping here

but as they reversed to head back

as there seemed to be no road going through

it appeared out of place on moorland

the engine cut out the friends were stuck here

their next move was unclear!

 

Their phones read no signal yet could see a tower

sat not wanting to exit the vehicle

sensed it would be unwise to step outside the car

trapped in disbelief so vulnerable

patience was something they all lacked for sure

should not have taken a detour!

 

Suddenly on the roof a bang as if somebody there

scraping metal ringing in their ears

a black substance trickled down the windscreen

a slug like thing slithered into view

then were also on front windows on either side

each feeling wimps and mortified!

 

The three friends decided they had to decamp

the windows started to melt

struggling into the rear seat luckily four doors

in unison forced one open and ran

stumbling down the road they had just driven

to get away alive they were striven!

 

Running began to tire then thinking it was safe

slowed to a walking pace

a boom made them stop a bright flash followed

turning could see it was the car

an odd noise next to them took each by surprise

the slug like things muffled their cries!

 

High above another chemical trail filled the sky

a fine vapour fell where even birds did not fly!
