How cruel can it be as it hovers so still,
calm and planning to kill?
Monster in size this hurricane threatens
to cause devastation all over the nation.
Old Liberty stands still erect and
proud shaking in anger her torch she still bares.
The waves crash in on the shoreline causing
havoc and pain as the rain comes in behind
it mixed with snow debris and angry crows.
Ships in the distance rock and roll as the
rising waves crush them stern to bow.
Sinking so many, they cry in the night
while the abyss drags them to her bottom
with no help in sight.
The nation is in turmoil all lights have
gone out, no power no communication
the sleepless city is brought to a boil
and like a mighty spring she
needs to uncoil from this disastrous
onslaught of nasty revenge from the
once had power over.
Let the winds blow, the rain pour and the
hurricane roar but keep the people it serves
safe and protected from its mighty and
devastating crushing blow.
