two poems written after the tsunami in Japan earlier in the year.
For Japan we weep.
From the safety of my home I watch
Scenes of natures horror
Engulfing coast with horrific vigour
Ripping lives apart
The oncoming sea
35 ft of terror
Relentless in its forward march
Removing mans mark from the world
Leaving dark brown nothingness
And the lives of many in tatters
Destruction continues after its passing
Stations on coastlines in disarray
Meltdown a risk
A danger many say
A tragedy 3 fold continues
From trembling earth
To seas might
And then onto man’s nuclear plight
Our thoughts are with you
Japan we weep
For your lost ones
This terrible week.
A poem by T Monk.
Darkness falls over earths blue sky
Warnings from mans nuclear child
The darkness rises
From reactors cores that breech
Sending the darkness in
To mans soul at sleep
This Nuclear fear
That man has created
See’s no sign of abating
So worried look on the common man
Looking for reassurance for a scientific land
They say its safe
But is it so
When earth moves and water shows
How quickly science crumbles and fails
Swept away by natures flails
Leaving plants in disarray
Spewing radiation every day
This nuclear child’s temper is rising
Fear behind mans controlling liaison
It must work
Control the beast
Before sets forth and reaps its Nuclear feast.
