Storm Michael: One More Symbolic Sign

Easier to read than the first:
Storm Michael: One More Symbolic Sign🤔✍️🏝️🌋♨️
Worsening fires,
More dire censures
From poor mother Nature;
Storm winds and torrents
Since last tempest Florence
Hit North Carolinas;
Coastlines more flooded,
And still those who doubt it,
Like President Trump,
Dumping the evidence,
Still in denial.
Shunning the evidence…
What about Pence?
The climate thing vile.
Yesterday’s hurricanes,
Quickening winds and the rains with no drains…
Roofs blown off, trees blown down;
All of it happening all over town,
And all of it shown on TV.
We are living in times without equal.
With sequel statistical flooding next door.
Storms know no borders,
And people are urged to be hoarders –
For crises like this are but chains,
And the rains have no enemies.
(maybe the sun – but that’s only one,
And nature’s not done with us –
That is for sure.
I’d bet my Schwinn bike
That Michael is far
From ‘taking a hike’
And happy to hear
That there’s not been one like it
Since records began.
This entire ramble
Is merely a gamble:
A figure of speech
For the breach in the wall
Of political wailings
And also their failings.
