Fury Of The Sea - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Melvin Banggollay

Headline news: Nature's catastrophe
Sinking a ship with a 3000 sitting capacity
During the wake of Frank's stupidity
flooding large part of my beloved country.

Everyone is blaming the owner of the ship
for this malady that took a hundred life to sip
untimely kiss of death amidst the sea's grip
leaving tears of relatives spilling with hardship.

My emotion broke down as I yelled God's mercy
for those whose lives were taken untimely
the innocent children, old men, young so many
whose bodies were buried in the depth of the sea.

What a sorrowful sight to behold the sunken ship
with buried lives in its huge body seen only in its tip
and what a sound of sorrow I hear as the wave whip
its furious anger sealing life of many upon the ship.

Oh God of mercy, why hasn't thou serene the sea
to remain in slumber in this time of a calamity
but pardon me for asking this to you dear Almighty
I hope if it is thy will, you saved the soul of everybody.
