Flood (Acrostic) - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Filling waters in all sideways and byways
Leaking through all alleys and subways
Overflowing canals, rivers and bays
Overflowing streets, stations and houses
Driving people into despair and madness.

    Thank you for your many wows as response to this short Acrostic on Flood, Isabella. There was a time when I felt how sad it was for the victims of flood in Bangladesh and for victims of flood in other nations. Floods can destroy lives and properties and even one's childhood when records and albums are swept out to oblivion. Thank you so much!
