HURRICANE

Hunkering down?
Going or staying?
Settling in
Or evacuating?

There’s still time
She’s out to sea
But headed this way
Is a category three.

Windows are boarded
There‘s food and flashlights
Plenty of batteries
To get us thru the night.

12 inches of rain
They are predicting
There could be a flood
The worst they’re expecting.

A monster’s approaching
Hope we will be safe
Will do what we can
Whatever it takes.

  1. Feel so bad for the people… in the Bahamas! Can’t believe Dorian lingered so long and caused so much damage!
    It’s horrible! Definitely causes anxiety! Thank you for taking the time to comment. It’s always good to hear from you. 💙
