I’m Blown Away (August 27, 2011)

She is furious today
Who provoked her?
High winds and ocean spray

I peer through the window
When will she leave?
Not friend, but foe

Intent on causing harm
Her wails are heard
Throughout city and farm

It’s all shut down
Don’t go outside
Her wrath makes us frown

What can we do?
But batten down the hatches
Devour the canned food

Movies will suffice
Until the power expires
Flooded waters and field mice

Tomorrow she will be gone
We will all clean up together
Birds will sing songs

It will be a nasty scene
Should she choose to stay long
Go home, Irene
