Nature Pleading

You howled along the coast like an angry host

accosting a frightened town with a category four

more  critical than ever before catastrophic floods rose

appose street rows and continued to rise

devastating priceless lives

transposing rivers on dry ground

drenching opposed citizens fleeing treasured abodes

lives shattered and unrecoverable but memorized

as they fled for higher ground

 Your angry winds lashed Houston to a whipping post

wielding a woeful lesson in environmental education

taking lives presaging  global warming unheeded

til the next time your winds call

with cataclysmic pleading

for a smaller carbon footprint
