    I want a tsunami to wipe away all the filth from this earth.

    Hugh MacDiarmid’s “Prayer For A Second Flood” springs to mind.

    “There’d ha’e tae be nae warnin’. Times ha’e changed
    And Noahs are owre numerous nooadays,
    (and them the vera folk to benefit maist!)
    Knock the feet frae under them, O Lord, wha praise
    Your unsearchable ways sae muckle and yet hope
    To keep within knowledgeable scope…

    … Up and at them, ye Gairds o’ Heaven.
    The Divine Retreat is owre. Like a tidal bore
    Boil in among them; let the lang lugs nourished
    On the milk o’ the word at last hear the roar
    O’ human shingle; and replenish the salt o’ the earth
    In the place of their birth.”

    Hugh MacDiarmid’s “Prayer For A Second Flood” springs to mind. The poet is praying for a Second Flood, like the Tsunami you are wishing for to sweep all the wretched filth from this Earth. It is a poem in Scots, I have translated it for you into English.

    “There will have to be no warning. Times have changed
    And Noahs are very numerous these days
    (and the very ones to benefit most – from a Flood)
    Knock the feet from under them Lord, those who praise
    Your unsearchable ways and yet hope
    To keep within knowledgeable scope.

    Up and at them, you guards of Heaven
    The Divine Retreat is over! Like a tidal bore
    Boil in among them, let their long ears nourished
    On the milk of The Word at last hear the roar
    Of human shingle; and replenish the Salt of the Earth
    In the place of their birth.
