The Hurricane

The catastrophic hurricane

Thumping on the gorgeous landlocked kingdom

Devastating an ecosytem

To a battle field where the outcome couldn’t be dreamt

But the kings of the dwelling could organise ceremonies

Celebrating their triumph

Overlooking the torment of the cockroaches

The hurricane has brought desperation.

The coming in of gigantic Chipembere

We thought has come to cease down the hurricane

Nevertheless had a binocracy

Unfortunately was wiped away by the hurricane

Now the land is turned into ashes and dust

All attractive lakes are turned into the sea of blood and tears

Where blood and tears could flood towards the land

Mixing up with dust to form a paste

Where cockroaches could be trapped and sell off their lives

The hurricane
