They Came!

Just a pleasant stroll in the early morning

heading to an open field so quiet

the young energetic dog lively on its run

then from nowhere they came

creatures with large bulging eyes and grey

not here with the pet to play!

 

In the rising mist in eery silence revealed

as the dog stopped running away

there in disbelief could not take in the sight

instinctively taking steps back

knowing their presence must be detected

this event totally unexpected!

 

She knew not from whence the beasts came

composure hard to sustain

reached her pickup truck heard the sound

of her dog but did not return

engine would not start as the grey creature

on her windscreen did feature!

 

Dead emotionless eyes stared directly at her

in the glove compartment

reached for a handgun instinctively aimed

the shell exploded out

shattering the screen and the aliens head

before the truck the body spread!

 

There were too many she was overwhelmed

struggling was dragged away

screams unheard from a farmhouse nearby

witnesses saw a metallic craft

hovering in the sky then in an instance gone

few aware of the phenomenon!

 

A farmer out before the break of a new dawn

discovered the damaged truck

close by a pistol lay discarded on the grass

near a black sticky gunge

nothing else was there to be seen or heard

fearful of what had occurred!

 

No bodies were found the mystery remains

the sightings from then on increased

officials said it must be weather or planes

denied anybody was missing or deceased!

Fiery Ball!

The farmer was out in the fields working early

when he saw a fiery ball

skimming across the sky changing direction

at an incredible speed

as if being piloted with his awe-inspiring view

watching how it flew!

 

Next the fiery ball began to decrease speed

certain it would hit the ground

rapidly approaching the hills not far away

running towards the spot

waiting for the explosion and flames to rise

silence why he could not surmise!

 

Feeling scared this was not a natural event

but curiosity drove him on

surely it had not landed without crashing

reaching the crest of the hill

then four helicopters arrived on the scene

with no markings they looked mean!

 

Rapidly followed by several army vehicles

stopping near the fiery ball

soldiers with no insignia fanning outward

making it the farmer surmised

a secure site this proved right noticing him

walking his way looking grim!

 

Firmly informing him it was a restricted area

guns ready in their gripping hands

decided to retreat annoyed he could not see

what the mysterious object maybe

being watched to be certain he had departed

had to finish what he started!

 

As soon the soldiers turned back he found a bush

to hide not far from the grassy slope

and waited hoping to see more when they left

the helicopters then flew off

several hours passed before their noisy return

he would be missed was his concern!

 

Half an hour went by before the copters departed

slowly and stealthily broke cover

retracing his footsteps as he reached the summit

was surprised to see fiery ball gone

just glimpsed a truck with a tarpaulin covering

a large sphere he was left wondering!

 

What phenomena had he witnessed in the hills

and why did the military unit

without any identifications respond so quickly

and whisk it away in secrecy

eventually he got home the wife was worried

telling the truth could not be hurried!

 

So many questions with no answers was hard to accept!

The Ambulance!

The ambulance sped along the busy road

intent on getting to the call.

A pitiful cry received that faded away

prompting an urgent response.

No location given traced by the signal

never this tense as a rule.

 

Without details from the distressed caller

apprehension was higher.

Potentially a trap they were heading

part of the risk they took.

Moments later coming upon the scene

both alert and keen.

 

Nothing could be seen to indicate a problem

on this isolated road.

The ambulance crew unsure what to do

had it been a hoax.

Informing control of the current situation

filled with consternation.

 

Told them the caller had contacted once again

even more distressed.

Baffled noting the silence then saw smoke

and pungent lingering odour.

It seemed to be moving as if it was guiding

was the truth nearby hiding?

 

No choice compelled to follow the phenomena

though ordered back to base.

Continuing cautiously into a large open field

drawn along a thick hedge row.

Where together they found a burnt out truck

in swampy ground stuck.

 

Nothing could be done for the person within

then the smoke swirled.

From in its midst there stood a woman

both retreated in shock.

After that moment no more calls received

solving the mystery achieved!

 

It was some while later confirmed that inside

a woman had died!

 

The Paramedics didn’t mention the apparition

the conclusion a tragic accident!

 

Nobody answered the question who telephoned?

The Sewer!

The council crew were sent to unblock the sewer

just another routine job!

This was what the dispatch operator had said

this turned out to be wrong!

In a rough neighbourhood street they came

everywhere looked the same.

 

Then as the truck turned around a dark corner

they could see the sewer!

The heavy metal cover had been removed

exposing a deep black hole!

Cautiously they got out to take a closer look

as the ground beneath shook!

 

Something big slid back down the sewer opening

nobody had  wanted to get out!

Unsure if anything was waiting to attack nearby

it was too quiet and still!

Shinning bright torches nothing was seen

being here nobody was keen.

 

But the job had to be done the sewer blocked

reluctantly they had to look!

No choice they had to go and investigate

what lurked beneath them?

This was becoming a big issue the fear

as into the hole they did peer!

 

Cautiously two men descended the metal rungs

their helmet lights on.

They were used to the unpleasant odours

but this smell was different.

Reaching the bottom they moved very slow

bodies were causing the backflow!

 

Horrified they decided to go quickly back up

panic hampered their exit.

An unseen beast slithered in the rising sludge

there was no chance to escape!

Shouting up to their mate at the top

their deaths he couldn’t stop!

 

Running towards the parked works van

he never got inside.

Out of the sewer the snake-like thing

it violently caught him!

Dragging him into the putrid pit it went

filled with human excrement!

 

The radio crackled a voice asked for a reply

but nobody was there to answer!

Dispatch decided to send a second  van

to find out why no reply.

Soon the second vehicle parked by the first

the driver sensing trouble reversed.

 

The authorities were called the area closed

realising a killer was in the sewer!

Not of human kind but created by mutation

from chemicals flushed away!

This sewer was only the first to be found

how many more underground?

 

The horror and the slaughter goes on!
