Eight Point Nine on the Ring of Fire
An earthquake shook the Ring of Fire last week…………………
Magnitude 8.9 and that was the peak.
My house is too cold and drafty at times,
they only have blankets but you don’t hear them whine,
Leaving their families, life is precious as gold,
Under the rubble, out in the cold.
I stock my larder, buying cases of corn, they stand in the streets too shell shocked to mourn.
I fret over my job, how long will it last, only to realize theirs is in the past.
No homes, no streets, no water, no power……..
My only thought is hot water for my shower.
The nuclear plants on the brink of a disaster,
Meanwhile I’m thinking about the sins of our pastor.
An earthquake shook the Ring of Fire last week
I only have time to pray for the meek.
My troubles are tiny, when compared to the Japanese.
Can’t we ask Mother Nature to slow down if you please?
I’ve seen the videos, they seem so surreal,
the news events show me they have the power to kill.
It’s been 65 years since the A-bomb destroyed their land,
What this world needs to do now is give them a hand.
An earthquake shook the Ring of Fire last week,
What is it you want, what is it you seek?
