Warning Antennas May Be Active



Could it be they are

Atomically tainted?

Beep. Beep.

Cast off an Electric charge:

Both positive and neutronic,


Danger! Danger!


Caution Livewire approach-

Hits like Effect before a cause.


Eep. Eep.


Extraterrestrials in the Power Plant?


Or A,

False Alarm;

Once Again

Everything for the moment is Safe!


They say there still may be something  circumspect:

There may appear to be Receivers from time to time!

OR better known as Antennas

continuing to charge?


Warning. Warning.

Certain or Certainly not.

Those Antennas May Be Proven to Be Quite Active?

Feep. Feep.









Melba Toast Kind Of Feelin



Becomes appealing only if it is…

The last thing on the shelf;

Or at the table grab it no one is watching-

Hard substance throws like a dog biscuit;


Some say it is a

Secret laboratory created hybrid;

Or Something Synthetic?

Enough to survive on but hard to crunch and your teeth may cringe.

Dangerous seemingly stale weapon?

Fake toast or is it?


Not a craving but a mediocre…

Get through the day bare minimum;


Hits me again.

A Last resort!

That Melba toast kind of feelin.
