I did not feel the shaking

There is no rain

Why is there flooding

The storms do not cease

We need to buy our water to drink

The fields are so dry

We dance and sing

It’s time to celebrate

We do not feel the earth begin to shake

We hear a noise

Is it an army or another party

House next to house

There is no room

So many people

God has left because there is no room

We blame God but we force Him to leave

Celebrate

Celebrate more

Our food has spoiled

Our water is sour

We are too drunk to notice

The earth is shaking

But it is not from music

Sit and be still

You may still have time to hear

Do you want to hear

Arrogance

The water is moving out from land

We stand and watch

Not realizing that it is returning

With vengence

Isaiah 5, Lamentations 5
