The Terrible Tragedy The Tsunami - Poem by Andrew Matthews

When the wave came in
no-one had a clue
of the destruction
or the devastation it would cause.

The Earthquake that caused it
was as always out of the blue
and no-one could know
that thousands would die.

Millions of tons of water
reaping it's terrible crop
washing away all the people
all wishing the death would stop.
