Honeysuckle Air: Poem About Wishing for Safety in Disasters

Since 2012 just got warmed up with the furor of Isaac only to add the horrifying perils of Sandy, I began to wonder where to find safety. It reminded me of when we dealt with Ike in south Texas with no electricity and food running low. We finally made peace with planning what we could and then sheltering in place.

Disasters Here, Disasters There, Oh Disasters Everywhere!

Where can I go to escape hurricanes like Ike?

Drive way out west or up the turnpike?


If I head to the west will there be an earthquake?

Will my car and my family become afraid then shake?


Or should I go up toward Kansas or just head north?

And let a tornado whip us back and forth?


Where ere I go there are no safe places.

So let’s just stay home with hope on our faces.
