Mother Nature's Apology For Hurricane Harvey

A stranger came here late last night
Silent puffs of falling white
Frigid, falling, drifting down
Unusual this far down in a southern town

Blanket soft and purest clean
Rarely do we have this scene
Every roof and every tree
Covered in such purity

It was only months ago
The hurricane did fury blow
Floods did havoc sadly bring
And wrecked most nearly everything

But now the sky descends in peace
Gray-damp clouds and snow like fleece
Whisper wind of gentle sound
Floating, falling to the ground

And like a bandage covers deep
The scars our hearts will always keep
For Christmas comes and now we see
Nature says she is so sorry

She drops her flakes as if to show
Her love with gifts of gentle snow
Here just before this Christmastide
The scars of Harvey...she will hide

He cannot abide rap, liver and onions, reality TV, and shopping malls. Rick has a lovely wife, a fat cat, and a taste for BBQ.
