A hurricane is on the way
and I began to pray
then laughed at my own audacity
for what have I done to sway
the heart of any deity?

Consumed with an unlikely dream
I never share my time
just jot compulsive rhyme,
ream upon decaying ream,
it feels as sad as it must seem

and I decide (with utter gall)
to impolitely call,
beseech upon The Lord
to somehow maybe stall
Irene and save the lowly horde,
but then I hear the squall.

Hello Bob,

I do hope that you and your will be safe.
And do not worrry, we are all of the same mind and behaviour, generally, when calling on the good Lord for help.
I neglect to thank him often enough, in my world too.

Take care Bob,
Eileen :)

It is a worry. I am thinking about the millions of people who are worrying right now. Take good care.
