A Hurricane on the Way

A Hurricane on the Way

 

By Elton Camp



The big storm has been given the name Irene

For the east coast, it’s the worst I’ve seen

The authorities insist that we should get out

But what I will do is still very much in doubt



Such a storm has never threatened us before

And I hope it will never come here anymore

Probably I should evacuate as they now direct

But I want to stay and my property to protect



And it would be a somewhat costly little trip

So far enough out of harm’s way I could slip

But actually it is quite alarming it does sound

So it might be a huge mistake if I stay around



I might have to go days without electric power

And my food would ruin and my milk go sour

Even the water flow might also come to stop

And maybe I couldn’t get more, not even a drop



Soon, the subway and city buses won’t run

And trying to drive out will sure be no fun

The apprehension is almost more than I can take

It’s a whole lot worse than last week’s earthquake



I look at the television and see a scary sight

So I cower in fear and my fingernails do bite

Irene, won’t you please go some other way

So that in the Big Apple I may safely stay
