Henry Piddington (1797–1858) - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

'An atmospheric system
characterized by the rapid
inward circulation of
air masses about a
low-pressure center,
usually accompanied by stormy,
often destructive weather'

circulates
counterclockwise
in the Northern Hemisphere
and clockwise
in the Southern Hemisphere.

blame him,
this British meteorologist
he
introduced the

cyclone

coined from
kyklôn

leaving Myanmar
with 100,000 dead
more or less

now, the generals
need help
