the batang kail tragedy


The Batang kali landslide

A tragedy shouldn't have happened

Yet we still read about it

The lost of lives in the tragedy

Don't blame God or Nature

It is our greed to develop

Without realizing the dangers

Cutting hill slopes unnecessary

The hill foundation will be weak

As years took its toll and rain

Underneath the ground surface

The naked eyes can't see the cracks

The rainy season in November and December

The authorities should have known what will happen

Checking the hilly areas should be conducted

It mustn't wait for tragedy to happen

Now the death toll increases

The authority conducted the search and rescue

Our prayers for a quick find dead or alive

Will the approving authority ever learn?
