When Disaster Strikes....
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
  Everywhere debris found,
Cries & corpses all around,
Poking microphones,
Ceaseless political drones,
Offers of lip sympathy abound.
 
Volunteers and defence forces
Employ all efforts and resources
To provide succour and relief
And restore the victims’ belief
In their actions and future course.

 
(Written in the memory of the recent Himalayan Tsunami and closer home, the City Light Hotel building that collapsed at Secunderabad on 7 Jul'13 claiming 17 lives)
