:: Poems: A Shattered Town (General)
 

The Sun rose again

For the town

That had once been

 

Its rays tried in vain

To spread light

Over the recent ruin

 

The Town was dead

Victim of nature’s wrath

Engulfed by the earth

 

Trapped in the lifeless arms

Of the woman who fed

A child was left alive 

 

Crying for aid

It looked up in hope

For what life was worth  

 

One eye aimed

While the other

Ignored the plight

 

Capturing the moment

The reporter walked away

Having done his duty
