Miseries of a city

Date Written: October 30, 2017

Haunted by curses of living dead

Survived after earthquake that tread

Abandoned buildings appear

And laughter that disappeared

Macabre skulls of stone and steel

Just remain and steal 

The tragic sight of queue for a meal

Poverty increased, anguish doubled

Anxiety howls and poverty troubles 

City appears as beautiful face ravaged by acid attack

    a destruction combined by poverty and exodus
