Saturday Night!

Already the effects of the alcohol made her feel ill

but could not let her friends down

she was having fun their night had only just begun

loud laughter everyone swaying

a regular Saturday night out drunk on a city street

a buzz she believed could not be beat!

 

Crowded music was loud adding to the excitement

no hint of any dangers close by

though their laughter would soon no longer be heard

panic replacing joyous banter

revellers were talking as junks of masonry began to fall

a beast soon their flesh would maul!

 

A huge dark shape swooped from thick cloudy skies

colliding with many their bodies shattered

crushing them with its claws and razor-sharp beak

at first they could not comprehend

hundreds scattered from this an unexpected scene

with images understandably obscene!

 

It was jumping and flying down amongst the buildings

as many disintegrated in its wake

others were instantly snatched by the long sharp claws

at such a speed was impossible to tell

at a party being held at a night club on its roof top bar

he was filming a situation so very bizarre!

 

There originally to record the celebrations of the guests

his attention quickly drawn away

glimpses of the attacker looked like a prehistoric beast

those around were panicking

as the night lit up with what seemed glowing spheres

from space adding to their fears!

 

Chaos reigned above human noise a deafening cry

that put those fleeing into a frenzy

some fell from the roofs others just lost rationality

all the time he filmed as he ran

tripping over the falling self-preservation his aim

no way in the vicinity could remain!

 

But with a few from the party tried so hard to escape

the army blocked their only route

firing with no hope of success at the swooping thing

huge yet so agile and aggressive pursuit

through the underground managed to leave the scene

then danger that was unforeseen!

 

Thinking it would be safe to go back up on street level

had not account for more of these invaders

as they were picked off one by one the camera rolled

even when knocked unconscious

the others fatally wounded until the breaking of day

their bodies spirited away!

 

He awoke weak unable to move at these aliens mercy

knew there was no chance of rescue

going into shack his soul was nearly ready to depart

the best swooped and he was gone

the video camera fell upon the rubble strewn ground

no longer part of this battleground!

 

It would be sometime before his footage came to light

the young woman survived her nightmare plight!

 

But it would be a long bloody fight to victory!

Heroes!

Man is always engaged in some conflict

yet in nineteen forty-five

allied forces had taken the battle

to the enemy’s homeland

they with superior weapons to use

were on their way to lose!

 

Even then many heroes being created

often unexpected participants

in a bloody cruel devastating slaughter

with so much sadistic acts

upon the foe and too often their own

hatred there forever sown!

 

Often greatly outnumbered to the end

each held their ground

turning defeat into miraculous victory

sacrificing themselves

defending the honour of each comrade

mainly orders obeyed!

 

Through gallantry pride and circumstance

into history the heroes eternally advance!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

That Day!

The weather was at last good on that day

as the countless military craft

headed for the designated landing beach

soldiers and sailors ready to fight

face the formidable enemy forces as one

their resolve had to be strong!

 

Socializing before the normality ended

many nations together in unity

differences put aside to defeat the foe

navy guns firing overhead

to wipe out the damaging gun positions

creating lethal conditions!

 

Onward without ceasing charged the brave

knowing they could not fail

into history to breach those enemy lines

at a terrible cost of comrades

planes dropping bombs noise and smoke

in their lungs made them choke!

 

Fighters back on their home soil side by side

many there for god and country

others dying to free their people from tyranny

civilians also slain on that day

as the allies spearheaded the bloody onslaught

each step desperately fought!

 

This being the first major step to Victory!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

 

 

The Gladiator!

The gladiator faced a fierce deadly foe

forced into the arena

stained with blood of many men before

hostile crowds jeering

shouting abuse with an increasing fire

a savage death their desire!

 

No shade the sun burnt  unprotected skin

sweat poured from each pore

clad in leather armour and metal helmet

with growing agitation

watching his opponent slowly advance

to quickly kill the chance!

 

Holding sharp swords and small shields

to maximise the injuries

every blow followed by a baying crowd

sapping their strength

chunks of flesh gouged by pitiless slashes

with the increased clashes!

 

The superior champion gladiator parried

knowing how to defeat

overpowering without mercy his quarry

hacking him to the ground

the final merciful strike raised a cheer

the death bloody and severe!

 

Lifting his dripping sword above his head

saluting crowd and dignitary

triumphant and proud the people’s hero

another victory achieved

impassive while body was hastily removed

again his superiority proved!

 

The gladiator proudly went to receive his trophy!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
