Tsunami - Poem by tochukwu nwankpa

The ocean looked so calm
As men enjoyed themselves
The fishes drank to their fill
And went back to their business

And suddenly we heard the
Sound of the ocean writhing in pain
Like a woman in labour
Trying to conceive a natural disaster
Men watched in panic

And there was pandemonium everywhere
The ocean raised its head and came speedily
Like never before with the tide acting
Like tyres coming to smash a canned bottle
It wreaked havoc and sent many to their early graves
But there were survivors who saw
The monster and yet survived its raging anger
