The Retired Bloke

Disaster at Genoa

Another disaster

Another shock

News that rocked the world

A human disaster 

Beyond compare 

Not a natural phenomenon 

Couldn’t be anticipated 

By anyone

By anyone who crossed 

Crossed the bridge

And plummeted

Plummeted to their demise

This should not happen

In a modern society 

Such needless loss of life

Such massive destruction

An angry reaction

From the authorities

But at this time

Not a time for recrimination 

But a time for reflection

For those who lost their life

On the bridge 

That collapsed in Genoa.

    So right about recrimination, that should not happen yet.
