War Zone


People walk around dazed, eyes glazed

Thousand yard stares, many tears

Houses in shambles, people, aimless, ramble

How? Why? To the Lord above cry:

Mercy me! Why send this catastrophe!

Dark waters flow. Death winds blow.

Cars flipped, house and home stripped.

Such a waste! Is no place safe?

Surly Man, just canít understand:

Mother Nature Wins! Begin again.
