The River

The River

A Poem by Scott H.
"

There is record, catastrophic flooding in my area of New York. So I wrote this.

"

“The River”


The rain marched through

In soldiered ranks

The river rising up its banks


It crossed the field

It took the flank

The river rising up its bank


Just as a wound

Fills up with blood

The river has become a flood


The town now lost

Beneath the mud

The river has become a flood


The levees break

The walls capsize

The river will not be denied


No matter which

Device is tried

The river will not be denied


In aftermath

We shake and shiver

You do not win against the river


Remember this

For now and ever

You do not win against the river
