2005 Hurricane Season - Poem by Lucy Burrow

Swirling angrily from ocean vast,
Wilma's Iron fist doth blast
The coast of far Americay
- This season's blown her half away!
Nature's washed their souls, their lives
Drowned husbands, fathers, sisters, wives
Tumbled buildings, felled tall trees,
washed the ships in from the seas
Taught the cars to roll and swim
Blew power out and windows in
what a season it has been
The worst the record books have seen
Should we listen, is this warning
Man's reward for Global Warming!

    A nicely well written poem of a ghastly incident that shook the entire world. 'Should we listen, is this warning Man's reward for Global Warming! '-Yes, this is true partly due to the man's greediness to deforest and grow more concrete jungles. (Report) Reply

    A half-flippant, half-serious poem written, rhythmically, very well. The antiquities in the first two lines are more amusing than irritating, which is always a relief i guess. (Report) Reply
