When disasters walk on legs of surprises
As many are tied by pain, disdain, wounds, deaths in crises
And help from above is held by disappointment
As people who have lost people become the appointed
…aid, looking for whom to save on empty stomachs
It is a sign that a country is on its death bed
For how can there not be a safety aid
How can there be no protective shade
In disastrous uprisings?
How are the affected supposed to turn saviour
When emotions are running like rabid dogs?
Contingency plans are for great nations
…through great minds
Let ears with wise holes listen to reason
To stop lives pushed through the colanders of death
…on all Black soils

To stop violence is hard dear friend. Somehow we must learn. To be kind to each other. Powerful words. Teach the wealth of the nation, the children. Time to work together. Not against each other.
