This is Blog 9 in my A-Z Blogseries:

Idai, so much damage you have done
Immersed homes, sent families on the run
Intact was a city that now is all gone
Indignant and ruined they dry in the sun

It was clear you’d be cruel, straight from the start
Increasing your winds way off the chart
In six dreadful days you tore Beira apart
Immense was your eye, but where was your heart?

Implore yourself now to look into charity
Indifference is useless and also just shitty
Indispensable aid may rebuild the city
Include those in Beira in the global community

(ok, that last strophe is a bit wonky, but don’t let it distract you from the underlying message!)


One thought on “Idai

  1. Good for you for putting Cyclone Idai on your list and for including the Doctors Without Borders tweet. And well done for breaking out of prose and representing in verse! I like “Indifference is useless and also just shitty”.
