Hurricane Katrina

OH MY GOD! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??
 
YOU CAME WITH A BEAUTIFUL NAME, AND TOOK EVERYTHING IN VAIN,
YOU LEFT THE BABIES CRYING, FATHERS DYING, AND MOTHERS PRAYING,
YOU CAME WITH DANGER AND LEFT WITH TOTAL DEVASTATION AND PAIN.
 
KATRINA KATRINA,
 
YOU TOOK SO MANY HUMAN LIVES,
THE DOGS, THE CATS, THE HOUSE, THE MONIES, THE FOOD, THE WATER,
ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE MOTHER NATURE’S DAUGHTER??
 
KATRINA KATRINA,
 
YOU TOOK SO MUCH, YET YOU DIDN’T EVEN LEAVE A POT OF RICE,
INSTEAD YOU LEFT THEM WITH DISEASE THAT COME FROM RATS AND MICE,
AND YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY AND MAKE THINGS RIGHT,
SO KATRINA YOU ARE NOT NICE.

KATRINA KATRINA,
 
OH MY GOD! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
HAVE YOU COME HERE TO MAKE US PAY THE PRICE?

One thought on “Nazim Bhimani: Hurricane Katrina

  1. This poem is so good and I feel so bad for the people that died from this. And I would do a lot for these people if I could but everybody can’t do anything. I feel sorry for their losses.
