Disaster tanaga III

Psycho-social trauma
MHP Bobadilla

Sakunang naranasan
Hindi makalimutan
Maghilom man ang sugat
Bangungot habang dilat.

Disaster preparedness
CDM Francisco

Wild as a beast, the storms rage
Free as the wind, the floods sweep
Dangers, hazards straight ahead
But are the people ready?


Technological disaster
M Celestino

Gustong gusto ang hi-tech
Tinamaan ng lintik
Ignored possible effects
Walang paki sa "what's next?"


Weather warfare
JNA Mojica

Riple at kanyon noon
Ulan at hangin ngayon
Madugo't mabalasik
Malagim kung maghasik


Disaster tourism
JPC Naco

Gusali na gumuho
Tumumbang mga puno
Turing ay "paraiso"
Ng mga manggagantso.


Disaster politics
PSC Janer

Kunwari ay tutulong
Nagdala pa ng relief
Yun pala naghahanda
Sa halalang palapit.


Media ethics
P Basco

Ang media at gobyerno
Ginamit ang Yolanda
Malayo lang ang isyu
Sa bagyo ng korapsyon.
