‘Natural Disaster’


By Lynn Ockersz

The ‘natural disaster’,

Has struck with chill precision;

For, the death toll

Is on a disquieting spiral

Of victims soon converting

To bloodless statistics

In dusty bureaucratic tomes

Rising in official indifference,

By Time to be soon forgotten -

But People of the world mark you this:

The powerless on the margins

Are always the worst-affected.
