Human Wreckage

Earthquakes do not kill people

Buildings do

The Turkish lady said

And clearly that is true

If foundations cannot hold

When the ground is shaken

What a fall there will be then

So many lives then taken


The physical destruction

So plain for us to see

The tragic loss of life

The utter misery

Reminds us of the Lord’s words

The house now built on sand

The lack of true foundation

Brings havoc to the land


And this a vivid picture

Of spiritual misery

The people who lack structure

The joy of family

The lost ones and the lonely

Who live in woe and fear

The wreckage of humanity

Lies all around us here
