PRELUDE TO DOWNPOUR?

PRELUDE TO DOWNPOUR?

Lightning and thunder around,

Portraying just light and sound…

So when will the rains

Pitter-pattering refrain

Come and moisten the ground?

Anticipation nears,

As animals show their fears…

Hiding under beds

Covering their heads,

Possibly shaking their ears?

To the radar most people go,

Whether it is rain or snow…

Technology

Should know, you see,

So that forecasters can crow!

CORNY BUT TRAGIC

(Facebook—Sue Bates)

CORNY—BUT┬áTRAGIC!

The world around is starving.

While snack food fattens us up…

Awaiting a coming slaughter

That may come on America so abrupt.

In the name of alternative energy,

We’ve priced corn out of reach…

Of all the countries we used to help

By sales, gifts, disaster relief.

Wood chip and switch grass-powered

Facilities few and far between…

Cannot compete with the corn harvest hauled,

Not even the mighty soybean!

We used to be a bread basket

For the world and was known for our good…

But selfish utility breeds reputation,

Our technology is bathed by their blood.
