Acidic Snow

Acidic Snow

A Poem by Jazmine Knight

Here in the northeast we got hit pretty bad with Sandy.To make matter worse a Northeaster came through that brought a snow storm.Im fortunate enough to have power but I keep thinking of those w/o heat


Snow falls from the sky

Soft and light

Brings cheer to little kids

Their faces grow bright

But not today

The white turns green

Snow becomes acidic

Dark and unseen

But the color doesn't change

We know it does not

But it infiltrates houses

It finds cracks and rot

Those with no power

In thirty-two and below

Left with no house

Shivering in the snow

You caused the damage yourself

Dear old Mother Nature

Your high hurricane winds

Causing dams' failure

Flooding and wreckage

And now snow

Sandy, why must you pack

This hard a blow
