Accounted For

Relieved faces
Talking on phones
Thank God you are Ok
All loved ones accounted for
This type of call
Overheard all day
That day

But somewhere
Faces were not relieved
People were not Ok
Loved ones did not return calls
This scene
Played out less frequently
That day

The relief of
Thank God that wasn’t me
I couldn’t go on if…
A luxury
Not afforded over
200 families
Who have to go on despite…

Same God
Same world
Same humanity 

Made up of some
Whose questions ended
The moment all loved ones
Were accounted for

And others
With horrifically accounted for loved ones
Whose questions
Have just begun
