Haiti 2010 - Poem by Michael Kersting

Haiti : January 12....2010-02-03....16: 23 hrs

The dreadful Earthquake struck suddenly
That unsuspecting day in January
From Palace to hut the indifferent Quake
Unleash its wrathful fury,

Buildings crumbled like falling leaves to the ground
Killing and trapping the unsuspecting thousands
In its round

Plumes of dust arose in the air
Amidst screams and groans of its victims' fear
Masks of terror and confusion etched their faces
Of victims fleeing for their lives to safer places
Poor Haiti what have you done
To receive such an awful Fate?
