This Storm That’s Coming

Predictions are that a storm is coming.
It has started with rain
and there will be increasing wind
and rain turning to lightening,
thunderstorms, hail and ice.
It won’t be nice —
this storm that’s coming.

We live in a region without hurricanes coming,
but now with the storm
tornadoes will take aim
whipping up chards of ice.
It won’t be nice —
this storm that’s coming.

Get inside to avoid what’s coming;
bar the doors;
lock the shutters;
head for the basement.
Watch out for razor-sharp, flying ice.
It won’t be nice —
this storm that’s coming.

Storms grow out of westerly winds coming
but this storm comes from eastern regions.
From Washington D.C. come fiery blasts —
across the states —
they are traveling fast
along the way, turning to deadly discs of ice.
It won’t be nice —
this storm that’s coming.
