The Flood: after effects

 

throughout the inundation

she managed to keep it all together

others did not fare so well

 

across the night sky

the clouds angrily fluttered on

cried their rage upon the land

 

after many nights of rain

forty it was believed to be

the beasts began to venture out

 

discovering her upon the ark

in a rage they tore apart

her heart devoured by rib of man
