Good News Bad News In Thailand As Boys Being Rescued From Cave And Tour Boat Sinks With 56 Presumed Dead

On the world news front it was for the Thais good news and bad news time
Good news revealed that 4 soccer players were extracted through the muddy waters and slime
To emerge after a perilous journery of 6 hours at the mouth of their flood cave
A true testimony of a world united to flock to the site to try to them save
Monsoon rains in the near forecast could have further flooded their narrow dry ledge
Forcing them further into the cave away from the waters’ rising edge
Bad news is that a tour boat off the island of Phuket capsized
With 41 tourists having died
With the tally to be higher by 15 who have not been found
More likely than not they have probably drowned
Even at a beautiful tropical vacation spot
Live life to the fullest before the dark boatman has you sought.
