The 50

The Courageous 50

They are working,
The fifty,
To save their country
To prevent disaster.

They are risking,
The fifty,
Death and disease
To save the many.

They work endlessly,
The fifty,
To prevent the risk of
Nuclear meltdown.

We must not forget,
The fifty,
The courageous
Of Fukushima.

The ground quakes.
Buildings shake with ferocity.
The earth is torn apart beneath us.

Tsunami moves.
Relentlessly flowing overland,
Consuming all in its destructive path.

*Giant whirlpool.
Fills the screen as an eye,
With a boat as a dirt fleck near the centre.*

Panic ensues.
Man realises he is helpless
Against the angry power of the Earth.

*with thanks to Caitlin Moran ( @caitlinmoran) who's tweet inspired this.

Crocus and snowdrops
Herald the change.
Daffodils to follow
Nests to arrange.
Lambs in the field,
The hope that they bring.
Time to acknowledge
The return of Spring.
