Composition of Devastation

So, you all remember the Japanese earthquakes. Our English teacher asked us to write something using onomatopoeia, and the earthquakes were the first thing that came to my mind.

Crash! The sky is falling!
Crack! The ground is splitting!

A bitter symphony of screams haunts my ears

Buildings collapsing, people crying

If fear was audible, this would be it

The cantata of screams, the sonata of destruction

This is the concerto of trepidation

God as the composer has written the final chord

The concerto finished, devastation done, lives lost, and gods cursed

The End
