As requested by Donzman, this poem is dedicated to the recent Oil Pipe Explosion Victims
A Society in Confusion - by Nilla
Lives left lifeless as repercussion
For a society in confusion
All because of a lack of obligation
Now who should be held culpable
For this circumstance so lamentable
For this circumstance so deplorable
For a society in confusion, this was inevitable..
Or how else do you explain
A series of events in repetition?
In eight years, eight explosions
Will this just be another tale
To be told at another interval?
Or will this be the last of the avoidables?
