23feb7 The Day After: Fragmented Reports


we have damage
might be worse?
with strong after
shocks my street?

flooded

I have water
from hot water
cylinder but
will ration

eight
pulled
out alive
from

Pyne Gould
Building
three from
CTV building
that is only
a block from work

a few thousand
treated for injuries

PGB totally
collapsed
trapping killing
200 workers?
CTV building
120 missing?

22 missing
in Christchurch
Cathedral
under spire
roof collapse

forty-eight
were pulled out
from collapsed
buildings alive
overnight

some people
pulled out
without a scratch
other people
had limbs
amputated
to get them out

scares snares
nightmares
not so easily
swiftly removed

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
