Avert the storm

cumulus clouds

Another storm is coming

The winds have howled all week

Warning of the blizzard

That must surely havoc wreak

 

It’s called a natural disaster

But I wonder if this is true

When I see the wretchedness

In your blazing eyes, tinged blue

 

And now the clouds have gathered

Warning alerts have sounded

It’s not just the inclement weather

But you that I’m concerned about too

 

I beg you, don’t lose control again

There’s just too damn much to lose

Think of your entire family

Resist the urge to call the thunder

 

Don’t let it be upon your head

That those who love you dearly

Should once again bear the agony

Please send the storm away.
