Thai Soccer Team Found In Cave After Ten Days

In a world plagued by chaos and bad news a ray of hope
A story of a soccer team lost in a Thai cave prompting a search of gigantic scope
For ten days a nation focused on their plight
Searching the  caves and yet they remained out of sight
Then on the 10th day two divers found the 12 boys and their coach sitting on a ledge
Escaping rising waters coming closing to its edge
A nation relieved in total jubilation
Hard to describe the parents’ relief and elation
Not out of the woods yet as doctors need to dive in to examine their condition
Food must be brought in to built up their strength to bring the rescue to fruition
Hard to comprehend the fears of being lost in a cave with its waters on the rise
Fading hopes of rescue and fearing one’s demise
Hopefully a way out other than scuba will be found
And this brave soccer team with their coach will emerge above ground
No more exploration of caves
And the risk of an early grave
