We plan and design and build our world
But everything bursts if nature unfurls.
Homes, schools, offices and streets
Everything hard built Nature easily deletes.

It swipes things out just on a whim
Even its creatures living within.
So many tragedies just in one day
And so many that follow without delay.

What is there to do? How to react?
So little we had was left intact.
But we don’t lose hope although so much is lost
We plan and design and protect at all cost.
