Flood


You can hear the cries of childeren,
faces pail,
Fear covers every living soul in the room,
Drip,
Drip,
You hear a dropp from the sky hit the flooded ground below it,
Lungs fill with liquid and one by one our number lowers as the liquid rises,
You try to help but you know if you do you to will be pulled under too
Help you scream as loud as you possibly can,
Not a single soul to hear you scream,
You grab your loved ones and say your good bye then in a second your all gone

Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
