The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 89 - Poem by Flying Lemming

The weapons were useless
No words could hold back
The sudden and violent
Full scale attack
The people were scattered
The houses were crushed
As the powerful front
Surged and rushed

More than lives lost
Homes and jobs too
The army stood useless
With nothing to do
Devastation for long
After that day
When the tide flowed up
And washed all away

Whole neighbourhoods gone
And families split
When we doubt nature’s power
We could be next hit
