The Hurricane

Rapidly the hurricane,
Shoulders swollen, with a tropical face,
Arms spread,
Fingertips destroying on the way,
Sweeps past demolished houses
And the wide street, ready to destroy.
Slowly the hurricane
Razing, razing,
Arms spread, shoulders swollen,
Crushing, crushing,
Out through the demolished street,
Slowly the hurricane...
A herd of elephants dismantles the way.
