The Horror Continues


Hellicane: Poets Respond to Hurricane Katrina

August 29, 2006 - one year to the day\r\nHurricane Katrina visited the USA\r\n\r\nPoliticians are in New Orleans making the rounds\r\nA shattered city desperately trying to rebound\r\n\r\nLouisiana and Mississippi seem to be doing well\r\nNew Orleans still looks like a living hell\r\n\r\nThey say billions have been spent\r\nI wonder where all the money went\r\n\r\nWatching all the replay coverage on the news\r\nListening to all the talking heads spew their views\r\n\r\nIn the meantime a city is in ruin\r\nDoes anyone in control know what they\'re doing?\r\n\r\nThe dignity of Human Beings was taken away\r\nAs Katrina paid a visit one year ago today\r\n\r\nAll the people displaced and all the tears\r\nNew Orleans, the once vibrant city\r\n\r\nThe corror contiues\r\nWhat a pity
