Earthquake

Another San Francisco earthquake – 1988.

Seeming to take forever

the fog began to lift

opening sleep filled eyes

through the rubble I shift

 She flexed her back

then came awake

an instant expansion

set the stage for a break

Walking through the city streets

and seeing all the trash

it really is no wonder

why the earthquake did lash

 She shrugged her massive shoulders

while hiding all her pain

she knows the greedy humans

will never give up their gain

Being told I should take notice

of their stupid silly grins

and that most people will go on

committing all their sins
