Irma

Irma

A Poem by Lydia
"

Irma is now a Category 4 hurricane and is headed for Florida. A bit of levity is definitely needed. Not sure how long we will have electricity and cell towers.

"






She’s hips and bust audacious

Red feeder bands make her blush so bold

Taking bits of pieces of the Caribbean with her

And she thinks she’s headed for our threshold!

 

She claims her dirty side is not to be messed with

They say she’s a daredevil out to conquer our whole state

But she doesn’t know who she’s dealing with

So listen, Irma, let’s get a few things straight!

 

We’ve dealt with Andrew and Wilma

David, Charlie, and Frederick too

You’d make a sharp turn to the east right now

If you knew what was good for you!

 

We’ve got water and batteries ready

Our lanterns will light up the streets

We’ve got wine, bread, and canned goods

And all sorts of delicious treats!

 

So do a girl a favor - just listen

It would be best if we never skirmish

If you go now and play out in the Atlantic

You’d fulfill my fondest wish!

Indeed a frightening situation. I hear Neckar is devastated too. Poor Sir Richard, homeless! My heart goes our to all in the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico, Pakistan and India. It makes me feel ashamed to complain about British weather; but I do lol!

I pray she stayed away. Many people in the way of the hurricane. I have many members of family in Florida. Be safe dear friend.
