Culling the Herd

Culling the Herd

A Poem by Daft Jester

With all the flooding lately, this seemed appropriate.


Minute by minute it grows higher

Enveloping, cleansing

Soiling and moving

So essential and deadly

Life giving and murderous depth

It comes from the sky

And from the ocean

It comes to destroy your home

Sweep away your life

Drown you in eddies

It comes for your family

Your memories

Your sweet everything

The exits are blocked

There is no end in sight

It keeps pouring

All through the night

It sucks you away

And holds you dear

Sweet mother nature

Is culling her herd.
