At Seynes-les-Alpes

At 3000 metres the snow melts
When an Airbus plummets in the Alps
Eight minutes alter many lives
A sudden crash – no one survives...

Seen from a helicopter – gloom
Debris lies scattered in a coombe
Recovered black box: analysed
Inconclusive findings are surmised.

Low oxygen, no Mayday call
An inexplicable free fall
How we take for granted airline travel
But a glitch can still our plans unravel.

For the waiting families plunged in shock
A desire to turn back Tuesday's clock...
What happened? Many countries grieve
Was the Ace of Spades up someone's sleeve?
