Nature’s Rage

Once again
Nature‘s rage surges oceans
and waves cart-wheel along the shores.

Nature’s indignation
Tired of our ways
shakes the terrain
while the weather vane
warns and advises
that Sandy
(a name innately innocuous)
has been upgraded to a hurricane,
potential able to plunk down tons of rain
All bets are off at Atlantic City.
Mandate decrees
Towns evacuate
Giant oak trees may tumble
No one is ever ready for such rumble

Nature is disposition is unpredictable
and we need to heed its warning
and learn how to respect
I hope the perfect storm
Is not as damaging as the proverbial
Weather seems to expect.
