Earthquake - Poem by Viraj Bhanshaly
Slowly cities subside,
Confusion streaks across, menacing,
Destroying, fretfully springing,
The city yawns, taking no notice,
The jolts, left aside,
The crack, the city sleeps, only to wake,
Move, see, yell, cry, Despair...
Buildings disintegrating, changing,
A mouth gapes, just as the ground,
The earth indignant, fierce, violent,
Jolts, jolt, Jolt, jolt, SHUDDER... crack.
'Gas Explosion Causes Seventy Terminations'
Seventy flights cancelled, Seventy dead...
'Landslide Causes Slides in Economy'
Economy rates at extreme low...
'Fire Causes Fritz'
People screaming, crying, trapped...
'Tidal Wave, People Swept of their Feet'
Water devastation wreck villages...
The city left in complete wreck,
Debris flying out,
Chasms occupying areas,
Flames, fallen trees blocking escapes,
Smoke causing suffocation...
The worst came at eight point one,
Struck the city firm,
The epicenter most, unrecognizable,
Still kept the feeling of aftershock,
Buildings sunk under,
The seismic wave, a catastrophe,
Only held feeling of death,
In this major earthquake Macbeth...
