*********

When the ground shook

When the ground shook, I was playing with my baby.

When the ground shook, I was receiving my promotion.

When the ground shook, I was curled up next to my wife.

When the ground shook, I was playing happily in the playground.

When the ground shook, I was fishing relentlessly.

When the ground shook, I was being given a death sentence.

When the ground shook, I was discovering I had cancer.

When the ground shook, I was shopping for my daughter.

When the ground shook, we were terrified of the Earth.

When the tsunami came, I was cowering over my baby.

When the tsunami came, I was huddled under the desk with my employer.

When the tsunami came, I was bawling by the body of my wife.

When the tsunami came, I was thinking of my lost years.

When the tsunami came, I was swept away by water.

When the tsunami came, I was taking refuge with my captor.

When the tsunami came, I was pleading for my doctor to kill me.

When the tsunami came, I was unconscious under a collapsed food shelf.

When the tsunami came, we all perished.
