White Island

 

is this humanitys bottom

our absolutely lowest point

the dregs of our filthy barrel

although I hope it is

I sincerely believe it isnt

and long for a better bottom

where instead of our depravity

we land upon Gods grace

 

on the CBC site this afternoon

“New Zealand volcano eruption

5 dead, 8 unaccounted for”

and in the comments section

also unaccounted for

jokes

 

this world

this cruel and heartless world

that these will laugh as death

eviscerates anothers heart

that these uncaring souls

will dance on unsettled graves

 

but perhaps

unknowing

they too have died
