Ode to Tsunami

Roaring anger through great seven seas 
erupted as spiteful giant water columns 
Swept off  fragile nations to oceans 
You ! the most cruel catastrophe of all 
Turned suburbs along seaboards to graves 
Naked bodies decayed among their own rubbles 
Once  paradises changed to unlivable grounds 
You! fateful miracle engulfed loving kith and kin 
Scattered carcasses gave out foul reeks 
Rescuers buried them in mass graves 
Crows and foxes devoured  untimely preys 
You! mindless wonder created such horrible scenes 
Orphanages filled by infants,kids and elders 
None could erase their unforgettable memories 
Blockaded their glowing future for ages 
You! mighty disaster made them stand still 
Wonderful tales about mermaids and leviathans 
skills and talents on gears and crafts 
carried to sea among laments of fishing folks 
You! heartless monster made mother Earth sadden
