The Rena by Victoria (Maungatapu School).


In 2011 Maungatapu School's Room 13 (year's 2 & 3) wrote poetry in reaction to the Rena disaster. The poetry and posters appeared in a window display at Tauranga City Library.

The stinky, bubbly gooey oil stain
It is spreading too much
It is killing the poor poor birds and
the creatures.
It is smelling bad.
The huge ship is on our coral reef.
It is too sad.
The ship is on its side.
The containers are now on shore
and now there's even more.
The containers have food in them.
The birds are eating, its stinky
and inky.
When will it end? No one knows.
We really hope it is going to close
If it breaks it's really bad.
More is going to leak.
