Photo Challenge #283

Rather an interesting photo courtesy of google images to work with this week from MlMM.

The warning came too late,
The die had been cast
Now he could never
Escape from the mask.
It had molded itself
Like a second skin
Enveloping his body,
Drawing him in.
He tore at his torso,
His face bearing scratches
Of nails turning finlike
With scales of cold patches.
Eyes bulging upward
A plea on his lips,
Please, you can’t leave me
Abandoned like this!
Eyes watching secretly
The product of their test
Of Alien and Human…..
And the resulting mess.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
