    These Scrambled Brains

    Tremors strike 6.4
    Had terror in Bim mounting galore
    Earthquake might soon jump the belt
    Some of us not even sure how seismology is spelt
    Every tremor disturbs but what can we do

    Seismographs determine we are safe but are they true
    Can’t say for sure a quake would hit our neighbors instead
    Ruin others while sparing us the years ahead
    All we truly have is faith in the Almighty
    Mother Nature has shown us her mercy
    By sparing us her fury here in Barbados
    Life on the island is a Paradise for most of us
    Emergency hospital closed however, but we never knew
    Dispensary was not dispatching medication to the needy few

    Buffoonery to stop vital drugs when our streets are still okay
    Roads and buildings intact so why stop medication today
    A worse state might follow, and may be impassable everywhere
    If expectations became a reality, there would be hopeless despair
    Needy few who might have received vital meds today, barring restrains
    Sent home after trekking to the QEH because of tremors on These Scrambled Brains
