Crickety-Crack, The Boat Went! - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

My prayer goes to those who lost their loved ones,

With my face in my palm
The sea angry, far from being calm

Crickety-Crack, Crickety-Crack,
The boat went
And in that moment
I was very scared

Crickety-Crack, Crickety-Crack,
The boat went
And in that moment
I feared for our lives
All that was on my mind was
How we were going to survive

Unlike the doomed Egyptian ferry
Nothing happened, though I was very weary
And far from being merry

I could feel the power of its engine
If this boat went down
No one would win
No one would know where to begin

Everything on the ferry was shaking
People were just sitting and faking
Or perhaps I was mistaking
Because of the looks of unconcerned faces
If there were scared
There were no significant traces

Crickety-Crack, Crickety-Crack,
The boat went
And in that moment
I became very nervous
With the complete knowledge
The sea is such a powerful force

A reassuring hand
Made me understand
What is to be, will be
I suddenly realised the Sea
Is far more superior to the Land
