Diner!

Apart from the diner sign flashing on then off

all seemed the same as the sheriff

got out of his new patrol car for his breakfast

thought it quiet his gut twitching

not for food but always alerted him to a threat

it had never let him down yet!

 

Most of the vehicles he recognised as regulars

but old Tozer the owners dog

was not barking at anybody coming into park

on the radio tried to be discreet

in contacting for backup knew he should wait

the situation did not want to aggravate!

 

Unusual but could not get through to his office

his gut twisted even tighter

quietly released his shotgun from its mounting

would have to go in all alone

taking small steps headed for the rear entrance

strongly sensed a presence!

 

Rear door was open stepped over the threshold

expecting to find anything

nobody in the kitchen afraid to breathe explored

though it was a total mess

through to seated area uneasy could smell coffee

charred bacon but bodies could not see!

 

Food crockery and furniture strewn over the floor

as if it had been violently thrown

but the mirror behind the counter was undamaged

so were the panoramic main windows

knew he would have normally at this hour been here

but was delayed as on the road a stray steer!

 

Pondering what had caused this major crime scene

the radio crackled his heart jumped

it was the desk sergeant to inform him of a sighting

of a UFO in his present location

then communications gone once more frustrated

went back outside becoming agitated!

 

Looked upwards it was clear then heard the dog yelp

there was a large trailer close by

where the owner lived ran to the distressing sound

there the animal lay cowering

its neck bleeding from tugging at the choker chain

petrified so pitiful and inhumane!

 

Where the animal was gazing he could see an object

shimmering blinding him in the sunlight

raising his weapon started towards the silvery shape

knew its must be what had been reported

a hum was noticeable his head seemed to explode

found himself in the craft mind on overload!

 

At that moment the desert ambience was shaken

by sirens of a police convoy

that soon arriving at the diners remote location

circling it greeted by silence

just as the sheriff had discovered it damaged

as if somebody the place rampaged!

 

Found the dog to whimpering staring at something

close by a discarded shotgun

unusual markings where an object had landed

standing unsure at what to do

when several unmarked helicopters descended

at that contact their involvement ended!

 

They were politely asked to leave now in military

jurisdiction escorted from the scene

could only be bystanders left to speculate the cause

their colleague another victim

how far did the veracity go in this massive deceit

very soon head to head they would meet!

Maiden Voyage!

From its moorings the liner headed out to sea

the decks and shore filled with people

cheering loudly happy and excitedly watching

en route on its maiden voyage

no hint of the horrors that would materialize

to this day many still agonies!

 

The truth behind the sinking still in question

as yet another theory emerges

an uncontrollable fire in the ships coal bunkers

was raging when it left port

prestige and money outweighed human cost

as hundreds of lives were lost!

 

It is surmised long before the departure date

the fire was originally discovered

the task would be no problem to extinguish

but the bunkers were full

nobody knew when the initial ignition occurred

as the twists and turns of fate stirred!

 

Even as the excitement increased for passengers

families tearfully saying goodbye

there was no visible sign to an innocent throng

the deception continued on

the ship set off on its only voyage and into history

leaving that lingering mystery!

 

Too many unanswered questions remain to this day

unease of what really happened

never goes away as more hidden evidence discovered

what is yet to be brought into sight

will it ever be known the veracity of that fateful night

full disclosure of these souls true plight!

 

 

That is a question there is no certainty can be resolved!
