15 Minutes All It Took



The flood came out of nowhere
No-one was prepared
Houses under water
Flood just didn’t care

15 minutes all it took
Cars, vans washed away
Trees uprooted, houses down
What more can I say?

Turned into a war zone
Dozens ended dead
Nature didn’t give a toss
Causing this bloodshed

The nature/human balance
At times hangs on a thread
We need to understand this
I’ve no more to be said
