Ananya S. Guha- A Poem

 Earthquake, April 2016
The tremors felt
the cat jumped
out of a table
and the dog yawned
we humans mercilessly
yelled and ran out into roads
shrieking, I wept for all my errant
ways.  Lifted a prayer
out of fear to Mother Earth.
In no time on social network
people were declaring that they
were safe, or how safe they were
they were prima donnas on
the stage of the world.
The earthquake was a mere epicentre.
