      DAMAGE REPORT

      We go down to the harbor
      to check out the damage
      but there's not much to see
      The sixteen boats that sank are entirely
      out of sight except for one
      stern sticking out of the water
      with an angry hole punched in it
      Strong smell of petroleum
      as motor oil & fuel seep out
      Another small boat lies grounded
      above the mouth of the creek
      Pieces of washed up docking wreckage
      line the shore as far as we can see

      On the bus ride home we give our report
      The bus driver wonders aloud if maybe
      the town isn't cursed or something
      Look at the weather he says
      you drive just ten or
      fifteen miles & it gets better
      Now take this tsunami
      Everywhere else on the coast they get
      one or two footers if anything at all
      but here we get an eight footer
      I tell you one thing they should forget
      rebuilding the harbor unless
      they come up with a better design
