A country stroll
Turns into a nightmare
When you discover that the public pathway
Is not all it seems.
That solid looking earth
beneath your feet
into the foul smelling underground
of a long lost mine shaft.
Your mouth forming a terrified O
Your fingers clawing the edge
of the hole
as the thick wet mud creeps
under your fingernails.
You frantically grab any tussock
to stop you falling
under the earth’s
Odd, the things you find on a countryside walk…
